Jean Fort was a prolific producer of erotica, under a variety of imprints, his Collection des Orties Blanches (White Nettles), was specifically dedicated to sado- masochistic story lines. Fort produced a very large number of titles under this imprint, between 1920-1939, illustrated by various artists.
This is the first of a short series of listings featuring” Orties Blanches”, titles from the 1930’s which is rapidly evolving into the period of the greatest interest for me, primarily because of the style and content of the illustrations across a wide range of competing publishing houses, and also of the artists themselves and the mystery surrounding the identity of particular individuals. But more of that in later listings.
This title is rebound with original covers preserved and presents an interesting unsigned artist, I have scanned the images in the highest resolution I can without bringing the picture loader grinding to a halt. I hope you enjoy the images.
This original title is available for trade against my Paris Olympia Press wants.
