    Great Quality Book, June 22, 2001
    Shawna Lanne “Shawna” (San Jose, CA) –

    This review is from: Erotica 20th Century I (TASCHEN Icons Series) (Paperback)

    This is a fabulous look at the erotic are in the early 20th century. The Quality of the book is astounding considering its low price. It is listed as a soft back, but the cover is thicker than most soft back books. The size is that of a trade size copy but the quality of the paper both inside and outside completely outstrips that of the average trade paperback. The colors are so bright and clear that I feel as if I’ll get my fingers wet when I touch the pages.

    The prints of the erotic art itself, which range from black and white to color to line drawings, are incredible. The erotic content and the impact of the art itself range from the sublime, to the grotesque, to the simply beautiful.

    While I rarely buy any art books, they are too bulky for apartment living and expensive besides this series promises to lend itself to both the series and the not so series collector of books. This is a beautiful book.

    Blah!, January 6, 2003

    The only thing I have to critisize on this specific volume is, that it overrepresents a couple of artists and leaves out so many. Other than that , looking at the “critics” here… I see all the blurb that always comes up when it comes to erotica – there is always a reason why this specific work is bad, why there are maybe some nebulous other ones that are not that bad(but probably will be shredded by a similar reviewer on their page…) People that classify Picasso as a disturbed scribbler, maybe just shouldn’t write about art or keep it with Norman Rockwell.

    Taschen Buyers Beware, June 14, 2009

    As owner of a number of fine Taschen books, I am sorry to report that this volume is an almost complete disappointment. One finds erotica from primarily 3-4 sources: an anonymous book and several collections. While the plates have Taschen’s standard quality, the limited perspective of these few artists fails to deliver anything resembling a true overview of erotica in the 20th century (something obviously very much implied in the title). In the same fashion, with such a limit on content, the brief text fails to do the same. While one may applaud the preservation of these works and the fact that Taschen has made them available to all at a more than reasonable price, anyone expecting to find a full or even reasonable overview will be sorely disappointed. I found this book to be a low-tide watermark among Taschen publications and the only book of theirs that I own that I actually regret purchasing.
