Book review - The Dominant Wives

The Dominant Wives - Eric Stanton
For those who do not know, Eric Stanton drew comics for Irving Klaw and many of his images are iconic examples of the early days of fetish illustration. Amusing, he cared little for the content, but was an excellent artist and portrayed it well.

In this anthology of his most popular works there is a recurring theme of misogynist husband does something to upset wife who proceeds to put him over her knee or invite her friend round to do similar, but repetition isn't always a bad thing! I can't quite figure out why a book going with Dominant Wives for a title would decide to open with Bound in Leather (a tale of submissive females and male dominant partners) but I do have to admit it is one of my favourites of Stanton's work.

For a little piece of history plus some amusing illustrations and plot-lines you could do worse than to get yourself a copy of this book.
