    Description

    Guido Crepax Histoire d'O [The Story of O] Original Art (Franco Maria Ricci Editore, 1975). A key page in the story, the woman in the last panel is saying "Her name is O... Bring her over to me... I want to take a better look at her!" Pauline Reage's adult BDSM erotic novel caused a stir when originally release in 1954, much as Fifty Shades of Grey has done more recently. Guido Crepax was already quite well-known in Italy for his comic character Valentina, so he was a perfect choice to illustrate the uninhibited masterpiece. His version, seen here in the original Italian, has been translated and reprinted many times, including by Taschen, NBM, and Eurotica. This marvelous page is produced in ink over graphite on illustration board with an image area of 13.75" x 18". It is matted to 20" x 24" and ready to frame. There is a very tiny abrasion on the left side of the bottom panel, and a fly speck in panel six; otherwise, in Excellent condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
