Received a review copy of Robin Bougie's incredible new book Graphic Thrills from FAB Press in the post recently. A large 144 page trade paperback, Graphic Thrills takes us on a journey through the world of classic XXX adult film poster art from the 1970's and early-80's, before the home porn video market really exploded and the artwork was gradually replaced by generic VHS photo boxes. Featuring one poster per page, with a review and insightful notes on each title, Graphic Thrills is a stunning tribute to this golden age of adult entertainment, and a must-have for anyone interested in the history of the genre, and of exploitation poster art in general. The US $35.00 price tag might seem a little steep, but like all FAB Press books this is beautifully put together and printed on high quality glossy paper stock, well worth adding to your film or graphic art book shelf. A terrific effort from the author and publisher of the cult Cinema Sewer magazine (and series of compendium books, also published by FAB Press). A limited (500 copies) hardcover/signed printing is also available direct from the publisher.
