Erotic Woodcuts - Catch up (2)

In these pages, for reasons of modesty (sic),  we have only occasionally mentioned Madam Cosima’s Personal Services Agency (especially the erotic art collection).  Madam Cosima herself was born in Saarbrücken where her father taught at the Art school together with Frans Masereel the illustrator who can justifiably regarded as the father of the illustrated wordless novel.  Loretta has received copies of Masereel’s 1919 ‘Passionate Journey’ and the 1592 English edition of the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili from a secret admirer who is aware of her interest in woodcuts. Rosetta however has lavishly coloured illuminated manuscripts she has borrowed from the convent.
