This lavish softcover art collection contains a decade's worth of illustrator Michael Manning's perversely beautiful portraits. Dominatrixes, dancers, fetish models, contortionists, and other real-life muses are reinterpreted through the artist's elegant line work as powerful and profoundly sensual beings who give free reign to their erotic desires. Introductions by Midori and Patrick Califia. Black & white and color.
"A porno universe in which I would kill to live, if only for one day." -Lily Burana
"Simultaneously lyrical, sinister and bizarre, Manning's works are high-style exercises in controlled sexual tension with a distinctly modern edge... Inamorata is both a superb introduction to the artist's vision and his most bravura work to date." -Ernest Greene, Taboo.
"Manning is revealing a very personal mythology here, letting his deepest fantasies seethe to the surface... What sets him apart from his contemporaries is the insight he brings to his work. When so much erotic heat combines with these smarts, the results are indeed incendiary." -Richard Kadrey.
