Booty call!

I love old illustrations, so I've been stalking "The Girls from La Vie Parisienne" on e-bay for a year or two until I finally found one cheap enough to purchase. The book collects illustrations from a naughty gentleman's rag from back when illustration took skill -- even in erotica -- and photography hadn't destroyed the visual form of nudity. The books features art from late 1800's to early 1900's, and it's fascinating to see the clothing and drawing styles change. One of my favorite spreads is one I call "Butts across Europe." Note they draw a difference between French and Parisian hindquarters. And way to go Spain!
