Who's Been Sleeping in Your Head? The Secret World of Sexual Fantasies

Designer credit to come

We can probably infer two things from the way the title is handled here: 1) getting tied up is a popular fantasy, and 2) some people are really into type set in all caps. You all caps people are sick ;-)

Hmm - an erotic photo overlaid with what appears to be labels from one of those nerdy turn-dial labeling devices we all use to have when we were kids. Kind of a buzz-kill on this one. I'm betting the red stripes are supposed to suggest marks left by a good caning (or one of those get-along horse whips), and I'm sure the caps where used to better fill up the panels; maybe a different type-face (less reminiscent of the labeler) would have helped save this one.

I thought the stripes of text went out of style in the... hm, when were they in style?

I duno. Graphically this works and i would pick it up. But all that not without the fact that it IS a book of sexual fantasies with a retro image of a corset-clad woman.

There is a pleasantness about this treatment that in the end I give a thumbs up.
