Grove (second edition, 1969) Portfolio of erotic drawings by Tomi Ungerer (1931-2019).

Herein writhe sex machines of the carnal psyche industrialised. Simple line drawings of complex desires. With an introduction by John Hollander.

"Tomi Ungerer's sexual contraptions are not the soft machines of mind, nor the impalpable machines of human relationship, but the self-parodying, hard mechanicals of alienated geniality. They are pictures of a dehumanized screwing (and how relevant the mechanical pun is here) that is as far from the purely animal in one direction as the most sublimated idealizations are in another."

The ultimate in sexist art, contrived copulation machines with mostly female subjects.
