The Art Of Eric Stanton

This multilingual retrospective volume entitled The Art Of Eric Stanton (Taschen, ISBN 978-3-8365-3930-2, $39.99) covers Stanton’s work from the late 1940s until the 1990s, including over 500 comic strips, single illustrations, and magazine covers.

Eric Stanton (1926-1999) has been called “the Rembrandt of Pulp-Culture” and it’s not hard to see why—he is perhaps the brightest star of his genre. His imaginative, detailed full-color comic strip narratives picture buxom, leggy femmes fatales having their way with tied-up, handcuffed, or simply awestruck men. Stanton’s imagery is either an empowerment of female sexuality or a caricature of female-domination fantasy—depending on whom you ask—but there is no doubt that in Stanton’s world, women rule the land says the in-depth introductory text by photographer Eric Kroll.

This volume is for the man who knows his place. ❚ Flattr this
