An exquisite edition of the most famous book on love, sex, and marriage ever written.
Written in India between 400BCE and 300CE by the philosopher Vatsyayana, The Kama Sutra is a timeless exploration of love, marriage, and sex. While famous for its openly erotic presentation of sexual pleasure, it actually addresses many topics, from what to look for in a wife to how a woman can learn to control men. This stunning abridged edition features extracts from each chapter, illustrated with more than 30 classic Indian paintings from a sixteenth-century version of the book.
This exquisite edition is printed on high-quality paper and bound by traditional Chinese bookmaking techniques, including a hand-sewn spine and uncut pages.
