Another major player in the 1930’s flagellation market, along with Orties Blanches, were Les Editions Couvre-Feu, followed by Le Jardin d’Eros, distinctly different in that the contents and illustrations were more twisted and aimed at torture and humiliation, unlike the titles issued by Editions Prima, which always seem to have smiling faces , no matter what act of depravity is taking place, the characters in these editions seem to be taking it a bit more seriously.
This title is available for trade against my Paris Olympia Press wants.
Another exceedingly rare title, which as you can see from the cover images is very fragile. Christophe Bier, notes in his bibliographical study (referenced below), that the illustrations in this title, by “Kurtys” are imitative of “Carlo”, and not that well done, I quite like them, but they do pale into insignificance compare against “Wighead” and E. Klem”.
The description below is by Christophe Bier, from the marvellous “Les Éditions du Couvre-Feu”, published by editions Astarte in 2013, where it can be found on page 145
