LOVE is an erotic mix-and-match toy book that marries poetry, art and design into a wayward ménage a trois.
The book consists of 17 erotic free verse poems and illustrations inspired by Japanese shunga.
It's supposed to be toyed with. The book is cut in the middle and halves can be flipped separately, thus creating numerous new erotic combinations: mermaids making love to angels, theater combined with circus, dolls married to demons etc.
The poems mix and match too, each time producing a nuanced verse with a new meaning.
Each illustration is accompanied by a short poem by a Russian poet Andrei Sen-Senkov. Poems are in two languages – Russian (original) and English translation by Ainsley Morse.
