The Volkskrant Magazine asked me to illustrate an article about the history of erotic literature.
According to the writer, older novels such as the classic Turks Fruit  were much more raw, progressive and arousing than newer, unintentionally humoristic books full of clichés such as 50 Shades of Grey.

I focused on the fact that erotic literature triggers the body to read, and that certain books arouse the reader much more than others :)

The editorial team of the magazine deliberated 1,5 hours whether to publish the image or not, and I'm happy that they eventually did!
