Bespoke Art Volume 3 Now in the Archive

I am pleased to announce that Volume 3 of the Erotic Mad Science Bespoke Art is now preserved in the Internet Archive. You can flip through and see what’s there through the Archive’s cunning embedded flip page. Try it and see!

You can access the archive page here, where you can get all 24 images in various archive formats, including a .ZIP and a .CBZ file. All of these are images published before at Erotic Mad Science, mostly as part of our first series of pulp art reconstructions, but many of them are being published for the first time at their full size and resolution, in some times many times that which appeared on this site. Feel free to download and, thanks to the Creative Commons license under which I’ve published them, share all you like.

I don’t exactly know the provenance of the illustration, but it appears to be part of a large series of BDSM-related novels written under the name “Nathan Silvers” available here, so if you want to add Daisy-Chain Cheerleaders or Hung Strung Houseguest to your library along with Lash the Librarian, don’t let me stop you.

Pulp Art recreations XIII: Damsel, mads, ape

Introduction

Another pulp recreation by Frans Mensink. I feel a sense of ambiguity about the ape’s motivations here. Is it another menace, or an enraged rescuer?
