About the book:

Travel back in time in search of long-lost attitudes on love and lust, passion and desire. Beautifully illustrated in full color, this fascinating exploration looks at how ancient civilizations regarded sex and sexuality before hedonism was curtailed by organized religion and relations between the sexes were complicated by a prevailing sense of guilt. Exquisite photographs showcase sculpture, pottery, paintings, and architecture that feature graphic representations of the human form and the art of love. By seeing how love was represented, communicated, commemorated, mythologized, and incorporated into worship from the earliest cave dwellers to the sophisticated Egyptian, Greek, and Roman societies, we can gain new perspectives on history as well as on our lives today. 176 pages (all in color), 9 x 11.
