“Love knows no virtue, no profit; it loves and forgives and suffers everything, because it must.”
Originally published in 1870, the notorious novel Venus in Furs quickly became a landmark work of erotic literature. Written by the Austrian author Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, the book’s themes of female dominance and sadomasochism are legendary. This new edition—translated from the German by Fernanda Savage—features stunning collage illustrations by French artist Nelly Sanchez.
This is the first volume in our collector’s “Classics of Passion” series.
