Books: Spirit + Flesh

The Perfect Gentleman 1959

If you've ever seen my photographs in "Modern Primitives", "Body Play" magazine or on television programs, you must get a copy of this new coffee table art book. After 50 years photographing my own body play and the play of others, here is a deluxe retrospective collection of amazing images you'll find nowhere else... 296 oversize pages, three pounds worth!

This book is a "must have" for all serious body modifiers, tattoo and piercing studios. A collectors item. Spirit + Flesh is now only available online, at my workshops and a few specialty outlets. Online and event copies are signed by me personally to you or a friend.

Spirit + Flesh graphically illustrates a broad spectrum of physical experiences: bondage, sensory deprivation, tattooing, piercing, fetishes, body rituals and modifications from 1948 to 2002. Introductory text was written by my friend Mark Thompson, author of Leatherfolk and similar esoteric works.

This book is not readily available any longer through regular book sources. Supplies are limited. Fakir is now the primary distributor. If you wish to stock the book in your store or studio, contact for quantity orders.
