The erotic sentiments described in the Hindu love classic the Kama Sutraconstitute the most famous work on sex ever created. Written almost 2,000 years ago, the Kama Sutra deals with all aspects of sexual life, including the principles and techniques of sexual pleasure and how to best achieve ecstatic expression of life's beauty. In this complete and illustrated guide Lance Dane accompanies the Kama Sutratext with 269 illustrations and great works of art that encompass coins, palm leaf manuscripts, sculptures, ancient toys, jewelry, architecture, ivory combs, birch bark, cloth, paintings, frescoes, and scrolls. Gathered from museums and private collections around the world-as well as the author's own collection of over 300,000 photographs-these rare images clearly illustrate all 64 sexual positions and the erotic instructions set forth in the Kama Sutra. The result is a dazzling and sensuous reading experience through which the teachings of the Kama Sutraspring to life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Gives us the dazzling artwork from museums and private collections worldwide... fascinating...sex has not changed in over 2,000 years." * Lois Mark Stalvey, Red Rock News, January 28, 2004 *
"A new, gorgeously illustrated edition of the famous Hindu Classic." * Erotic Review, Dec/Jan 2004, Issue 58 *
"It is not, in fact, a pornographic work, but a book depicting the art of living for the civilized and refined citizen, finding its expression in the sphere of love, eroticism, and the sensual pleasures of life. . . . Rather than calling the Kama Sutra pornography and hiding it on the highest shelf of their bookcases, Western readers should see it as the expression of a refined, sophisticated people on the art of love." * Audrey Chaix, Vulpes Libris, Jan 2010 *
