These books were limited to one or two hundred copies—this exclusivity meant they were very, very expensive. The stories and the poetry were often times just incidental—an added bonus if you like—to the main attraction: highly explicit and beautifully produced illustrations of all kinds of sexual shenanigans.

Creating Wooden Origami Furniture – Table And Chairs Here’s one furniture design who’s inspiration may have been partly taken from Origami, the Japanese art of folding paper. Wood as we all know is usually used as a rigid material for furniture and structures, holding its final designed shape, but this is one instance wherein it seems to be dynamic and organic in nature.

Here are some items that I have recently collected and would love to share, they are in no particular order but it’s worth scrolling down to view all so you don’t miss any!
