Typography of Lust

The full, folded-out cover for the new Penguin Classics US deluxe edition of the Kama Sutra (first discussed here); sex-type by Malika Favre, overseen by Paul Buckley. Click for a much bigger version.




I think this qualifies as the most obscene spine in my library, or at least equal-most with this one.

yeah, i saw that kama sutra in mid production at Paul's office at Penguin in NY and fell in love. Wonderful illustrations...

It's very clever, and surprisingly daring.
