Published by Inner Traditions
SEXUALITY Completely illustrated for the first time, the Hindu love classic the _Kama Sutra_ continues the most famous work on sex ever created. Written almost 2,000 years ago, the _Kama Sutra_ deals with all aspects of sexual life, including the principles and techniques of sexual pleasure and how to best achieve ecstatic union. In this complete and illustrated guide Lance Dane accompanies the _Kama Sutra_ text with 250 illustrations and great works of art from coins, palm leaf manuscripts, sculptures, ancient toys, jewelry, architecture, ivory combs, birch bark, cloth, paintings, frescoes, and scrolls. Gathered from museums and private collections around the world--as well the author's own collection of over 300,000 photographs--these rare images clearly illustrate all 64 sexual positions and the erotic instructions set forth in the _Kama Sutra_. The result is a dazzling and sensuous reading experience through which the teachings of the _Kama Sutra_ spring to life. LANCE DANE is a writer, photographer, renowned scholar, and the founder of the Sanskriti Museum of Everyday Art in Delhi. He has dedicated over five decades to researching and archiving all aspects of the _Kama Sutra_ and other pre-Vedic and Vedic classical erotica. His private collections of over 9,000 books on Indian art and architecture and his 300,000 archival photographs are housed in the Indira Gandhi National Centre for Arts in New Delhi. He lives in India.
