One of the series of woodcuts inspired by research into popular French 16th century pornography.

Created by using traditional craft techiques, are inspired in part by traditonal Japanese “pillow books” and by the writings of Rabelais and Jean Gracieux, alias Bruscambille, and feature lewd and earthy snippets in 16th century French. Several were shown at a conference at the Courtauld Institute in London in May 2014.

We are the first gallery to offer these prints, which are being made available in short run limited editions.
