Throughout the years and the many outstanding Gallery Girls collections released by SQP, there has been one artist who has always stood out from the pack, Spanish artist Joan Pelaez. It seems every time I review a new Gallery Girls Collection, I always note the Pelaez' pieces as my favorites. Now, SQP has collected these great pieces in the first collection dedicated to this phenomenal talent. Perhaps no current artist is able to capture the seductive qualities of his subjects the way Pelaez does. His women are simply mesmerizing to behold, enchanting you with just a glance.
This book runs the gamut of the Gallery Girls books and features vampires, mermaids, witches, pirates, jungle girls, and a liberal dose of lesbianism and bondage pieces. There's a biker vampire leering coldly at the reader, and another vamp snarling, fangs sharp as a razor as she hangs from the ceiling with her bats. The bondage pieces are playful yet very erotic and filled with gorgeous women in thigh high leather boots, whips and riding crops about to deliver a good spanking.
There's a great piece with three beauties nude in a hot tub sharing some red, ripe cherries, a lovely topless witch flying on her broom past a haunted house, and a fantastic nude Egyptian princess in full regalia. Just try to find a piece that you DON'T love! The depth and detail in Pelaez' work is what really attracts me. You can spend hours perusing the book and catching little things you might have missed at first glance. This is simply a must-have for fans of the Gallery Girls or any fan of erotic pin-up art.

otherwise spoil the often attractive R rated women.
Other quality stimulating erotica out there as a whole not too offensive or degrading: Fireside Orgies, Naughty Escapades, Visions of Giovanna, Casotto, Omaha Collection 1, Felines, Great Moves, Stray Moonbeams, Attractive Forces, Erotic Comics 2, Just Bloomed, Pirate Queens Booty, College of Erotic Sciences, Three of a Kind, Magarya, Tharnara & Juda, Nagarya, Frollo, Little Ego, Fairy Tails, Wet and Wild, Leather and Lace, Devil's Whisper, Barbarian Chicks and Demons etc.
- Note: Although some of these titles sound depraved, they as a whole they aren't nearly so bad as the titles may convey... or like me you can just cut or tear out the offensive parts as much of it very well done (Why is there so much talent yet so little sensitivity, respect, empathy and humanity towards one another...especially women, portrayed sexually)???.

There is a bit of the life history of Joan Pelaez in this book and is worth reading as he is unique in drawing women.
It seems to inspire me to slowly flick through the pages, taking in as much of the detail as possible of the b/w drawings. He has the ability to turn his hand at any theme and blend his women into it, whether they have clothes or otherwise.
It would be an excellent book to have in your collection as there are witches, vampires, mermaids, jungle girls, lesbians, ghosts and pirates to mane a few. Don't be caught without this book in your personal collection.
