6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mark Russell on December 13, 2001
Format: Paperback
Animerotics, by David Delamare and Wendy Ice, dwells in that rare nexus between history and imagination. Richly illustrated with sepia-toned color plates by Delamare, we are given a glimpse into the world of the highly eccentric and instantly endearing Alphonse Zukor, underground vaudevillian and seeker of curious pleasures.
Set in Edwardian Europe, Zukor's dream is to produce a cabaret act that combines his passions for exotic animals, burlesque women and the alphabet. The product of a misunderstood visionary, his quest finds trouble wherever it lands, while historic and literary figures from George Bernard Shaw to the Marquess of Queensbury become entangled in the dragnet. Animerotics seamlessly blends the real with the fantastic in a story powerfully told in words and masterfully brought to life in paintings.

Format: Paperback
This type of stuff is right up my alley, personally. And it is one of the rare art books in which the text is as fascinating as the artwork itself. What a wierd and original story . This creative team have invented their own type of erotic circus and its amazing underground exisitence that leads you into a haunting and intriguing world. It is fiction but it s not so far fetched that you don't have fun imagining, "What if?"
If you like circus life, the book Geek Love and the darker side of human behavior, you will find this book just astonishing.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Twenty-six images, from A to Z done in a sepia, old time vintage feel. I really like the feel of the book, and overall I like most of the images. Obviously there is a lot of nudity in the pictures, but that should pretty much be self evident. The book is big, about 10 x 13". Each image is on the right hand panel, so if you wanted to purchase and frame any of the images of this book, it would be a much cheaper way to go than buying each one individually and you would not ruin a picture on the back of the paper by framing the front side. The paper quality is very good. I have never seen the individual prints in person, so can't say for sure, but would not be surprised (in fact for the price I would be disappointed) if that paper/print quality is not better, but its very very good in the book, more than good enough to mount and frame. So, if you like Delamare's works, I strongly recommend this book.

I was originally drawn to this book because I found a couple of postcards with images from it on them that I ended up framing and displaying on my wall. I was immediately intrigued with the dark eroticism and dangerous sex appeal that the images conjure up. It's very whimsical art, as well, and I love the storyline behind the images.
