The First John Willie Bondage Photo Book (Vintage magazine)

 

Van Nuys, CA: London Enterprises Limited, 1978. First printing, saddle-stapled quarto softcover, 63pp, distributed by LDL (London or Lyndon Enterprises Limited), featuring the fetish photography of John Willie. First in a 3-volume series. 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.

 

Very Good Plus overall, light rubbing and foxing.
