Bound like an antique medical text or prayer book, A History of Andres Serrano--A History of Sex is a finely crafted monograph with beautiful reproductions, fine paper, gilt edges, a red silk bookmark, maps, and pages for notes. It contains a broad representation of Serrano's work--from Piss Christ to the Morgue series--and two new series of work Istanbul and A History of Sex. The latter, for which this collection is named, contains some bizarre, explicitly sexual works--midgets, animals, bondage, clowns, priests, etc. Includes an interview with Xaviera Hollander, who rose to fame in the 1970's as the 'Happy Hooker.'

Black leatherette boards with embossed gilt lettering, all edges gilt, decorated endpapers, red silk bookmark. 120 pp. with 60 color photos, notes. Design by Swip Stolk. Protected with mylar wrap.
