Irving Klaw was the legendary New York-based mail order merchant who from 1949 onwards produced thousands of films, photographic sets and printed booklets based on themes of fetishism, bondage, and sado-masochism. Although Klaw's most enduring artistic legacy arguably lies in his pioneering publishing work in the field of bondage illustration, he will always be best-known for his discovery and promotion of the iconic bondage model who went on to be famous throughout the cool world -- Betty Page. Through thousands of BDSM-themed photographs, as well as numerous short films, Page would become not only the superstar of the Klaw catalogue but, retrospectively, the most iconic fetish model of all time.
THE WILD WORLD OF BETTY PAGE gathers together 80 classic photographs of Page, never before published in a single volume, which cover almost every aspect of her modelling work with Klaw. From sexy pin-ups in lingerie and fetish-wear to more intense scenes of sado-masochism, bondage, spanking and cat-fights, this anthology presents the essential Betty Page. The photographs selected also feature many of Klaw's other regular bondage models.
