Summary

Amsterdam rejoices in  more than simply its famous canals and its celebrated collections of the works of Rembrandt, Vermeer and Van Gogh. It has a museum dedicated to the Goddess of Love, which welcomes no fewer than 500,000 visitors a year. From all over the world people come in their thousands to this unusual establishment known as “The Temple of Venus”. First put on display together in 1985 by Monique van Marle and her father, this collection of erotic works is exceptional for the quality of the objects exhibited, its engravings and its photographs of yesteryear. Far from being a focus for voyeuristic prurience, the Museum is intended to be understood as a serious centre for the history of erotic art. This book takes us on a guided tour of this fascinating place devoted to a fascinating subject.

    No one knew Led Zeppelin like Richard Cole. The band's tour manager for more than a decade, Cole was there when they burst onto the music scene, achieved cult status, cut platinum records, and transformed popular music. Second only to the Beatles in sales for years, Led Zeppelin was rock's premier group. But unlike the boys from Liverpool, the excitement of this band"s music was matched by the fever pitch of their antics on and off the stage....In hotel rooms and stadiums, in a customized private Boeing 707 jet and country estates, Richard Cole saw it all -- and here he tells it all in this close-up, down-and-dirty, no-holds-barred account that records the highs, the lows, and the occasional in-betweens. This revised edition brings fans up to date on the band members' lives and careers, which may be a little quieter now, but their songs remain the same.

    An empowering, sex-positive guide to glamour magic with spells and fashion advice for all budgets and body types.Sophie Saint Thomas knows fashion and glamour and how to use them to make magic happen. “Vanity is not a sin,” she writes, “but a tool of power to be embraced. Costume is power, and through fashion, makeup, and other glamour magick tools, we can step into such power.”In Glamour Witch, Sophie offers a history of glamour magick from a modern perspective complete with a bounty of glamour magick spells. Her message is that not only can you have fun with your appearance—be it a sparkly David Bowie-esque getup or a laid-back wood nymph vibe—but you can also use glamour to express yourself and get what you want.People are turning to this form of self-care more than ever.Men are increasingly being included in wellness, fashion, and jewelry trends.It’s high time that more people know that you can use your dress for power before some idiot tries to use it against you (insert throwback to being called to the principal’s office for dress code violations).Embracing glamour and dress is no longer a tool of repression but a tool of expression—and this book will teach you how, at all price points and for all genders.
