The first English language edition of this sophisticated erotic graphic novel by the famous Italian comics stylist.
Crepax's follow-up to his worldwide hit Story of O was first published in Italian in 1978 and went on to be published worldwide. This is an attractive copy of the first English language edition--published in 1980 by the American publisher of the controversial, Grove Press.
From the publisher:
The novel Emmanuelle has sold over 500,000 copies since its first hardcover edition. It was also made into one of the most successful X-rated films of the past decade. Like its companion volume, the Illustrated Story of O, also done by Guido Crepax, this tale of the young and beautiful wife of a French diplomat who becomes a complete sensualist is the perfect vehicle for the wicked and revealing pen of the visual artist.
