Holiday Recommendation Guest Post: Eunice Luk

Pink Freud
Taipei, Taiwan: nos:books, 2015
62 pp., 13cm x 19.5 cm., Letter press cover, two colour riso interior.
Perfect bound with pink glue on three edges.

"Pink Freud is a collection of Chihoi’s erotic sketches, made while he was watching AV movies. The sketches capture the fleeting moments of the artist’s horny mind. And the tension, between the horny eye and the aesthetic eye, is honestly jotted down on paper."  The book edges are also sealed with pink glue, one must cut from an opening on the book's fore edge to reveal a new page. It's a beautiful, alluring book published by one of my favourite publishers in Asia.

You can purchase a copy on nosbooks' website :
