The Passionate Penis by Jean Cocteau
Erotic Drawings, with an introduction by Margaret Crosland. A very rare book in very good condition--as new--in its unclipped dust jacket. From the inside cover: "Whimsical, explicit, event surreal, these drawings of young men reveal the truth of Cocteau's statement: 'Sexuality is the driving force behind all my work.' The drawings are collected here for the first time. Many of the subjects were Cocteau's friends and some of them were lovers. Margaret Crosland, Cocteau's biographer and translater and an acknowledge authority on his work, provides an introduction which illuminates Cocteau's background and the development of his sexuality."
