Willie, John

 

Portfolio, and Bondage Photo Book (4 Vintage magazines, 1 calendar)

 

Van Nuys, CA: London Enterprises Limited, 1978-79. Four vintage magazines, 1978-79, first printing, saddle-stapled quarto softcover, 3 magazines and a calendar from LDL (London or Lyndon Enterprises Limited), and an undated title from HCI, all featuring the fetish artwork, photography, and correspondence of John Willie. Included: The Works of John Willie, The First and Second John Willie Bondage Photo books, A John Willie Portfolio, and a solid example of the The 1979 John Willie Bondage Calendar.

 

John Alexander Scott Coutts (Willie) was an intelligence officer in Australia prior to WWII, emigrated to the US and resumed what he'd begun in the 1930s: illustrating and photographing women bound and gagged, set in scenes involving damsels in distress, female domination, bondage, Kinbaku rope art (or "shibari" = tied up tight), flagellation, and lots of shiny leather and black lingerie. His bound damsels first appeared commercially in the 1940s, and he practiced regularly until 1958 when a favorite model Judy Dull was murdered by Harvey Glatman. Willie died 1962, but introduced a set of fetishes and aesthetic at once important artistically and and controversial socially. For consenting, mature audiences.
