Gilles Néret – Erotica Universalis (1994)
750 pages of fully illustrated Erotic Art, from the prehistory and ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, through the Middle Ages until the XIX and XX century, from the anonymous artists to some of the best artists of all times, like Rembrandt and Picasso, and many many more…The artistic quality of work varies a lot, but the excitement is always there, and the book fulfils all of the sexual categories, preferences, fantasies, etc. Taschen was the first to do it in a such a volume to bring the (mostly) unknown Erotic Art to the masses, at a very affordable price. A real revolution!
