Jan 24, 2010 Mortalform rated it 5 of 5 stars
Recommends it for: BDSM enthusiasts, artists, illustrators, appreciators of unusual beauty
Recommended to Mortalform by: Kirk
Some pornographic art is so blatant I actually find it hard to look at. Manning's illustrations are exquisite, detailed mazes of limbs and chains. His pictures need to be decoded to figure out who is doing what to whom which forces me to get past any embarrassment I might feel and enjoy his painstaking devotion to detail. I am especially fond of his tattoos and designs, probably some of the best I've ever seen.
I discovered the art of Michael Manning when I was about 19 years old and in really threw me for a loop. He is probably one of the most gifted illustrators/comic artists working. This book is a beautiful exposition of his work.
