Description
DO NOT DISTURB is a beautifully designed book that will showcase all the surprising and delicious aspects of desire, in all its manifestations; longing, lusting, wanting, craving, yearning, both of the mind and of the body and ideally in perfect tandem. Desire burns in a space and implores us to satisfy its needs. As such it can become a passionate driving force, leading us to greater heights and has the capacity to fill us and inhabit us until we ache. The industry of eroticism extends beyond the red-light district to include uptown elements such as specialty boutiques and haute couture lingerie. DO NOT DISTURB reveals surprising and delicious objects that inspire both physical and emotional desire. Seven sultry chapters will focus upon inspiring objects whereby the concepts, design and craftsmanship elicit and encourage the desire that resides behind closed doors. Although the focus will predominantly be on the contemporary we will include historical elements behind erotica and objects of distinction that cross centuries.
