The Kama Sutra is a Hindu treatise on the art of love, composed sometime during the 1st and 4th centuries AD. Written in Sanskrit, it is attributed to Vatsyayana, also known as Mallanaga. 'Kama' is the Hindu word for love, pleasure, and sensual gratification; and 'sutra' are aphorisms. The work is partly a marriage manual containing specific sexual information, including the arts of scratching, biting, and pinching. But the enormous influence of the Kama Sutra stems from its wider discussion of women, courtship, and the place of erotic pleasure in the urbane life of a man or woman of leisure. It was first translated into English in 1883 by the famous explorer, Sir Richard Francis Burton. Kama Sutra of Vatsysyana in Pop-up uses exerts from the original text, as translated by Richard Burton, and color plates from the authentic Indian illustrations that show how to perfect your lovemaking skills. There are also six pop-up sections, showing a selection of the most interesting positions from the Kama Sutra in three-dimensions, using the latest in paper-engineering techniques. This is a fun but artistic look at the images and advice of the Kama Sutra.
