Recent Books

Of the many books I have recently purchased from thriftbooks.com, three books could be construed as ‘risqué’, ‘naughty’ or ‘indecent’. These books are:

  • “The Mammoth Book of Illustrated Erotica” edited by Maxim Jakubrowki and Marilyn Jaye Lewis (2001)
  • “The Book of Nude Photography” by Michael Boys (1981)
  • “Glamour Nude Photography” by Robert & Sheila Hurth (1997)

I should confess that I would like to have become a professional photographer. Photography offers a different level of creativity that painting or drawing can’t duplicate. I would also like to have become a professional painter or artist as painting and drawing offers a different level or creativity that photography doesn’t offer.

Yet, I never became a professional photographer or painter or artist. I was (am) a worker drone for much of my life. I had to be a worker drone due to decisions I made early in life. Getting married and raising kids makes being a worker drone is the way I choose to provide for my family.

The “Glamour Nude Photography” and “The Book of Nude Photography” are helpful instructional references if I ever change career choices. “The Mammoth Book of Illustrated Erotica” is not instructional but illustrative and is certainly more on the risqué side of the spectrum. It showcases the work of 75 photographers who specialize in the erotic side of nude photography. The forward to this work says there are five other volumes in the series.
