Here they are! The most fabulous and provocative creatures in the world of fiction, "Jungle Girls", from H. Rider Haggard's 'She' to Edgar Rice Burroughs' 'Jane" to Hedy Lamarr's 'Tondeleyo' to Silke's versions of the modern, bold, daring and dangerous beauties that prowl his imagination. They're all here, the Jungle Goddesses, Queens, and Slaves as well as their sisters in that happy madness of exotic femme fatales, Tropic Tramps, Dragon Ladies, Harem Damsels, and semi-clad Barbarians. It's not a history, but a celebration of that impossible, looney, glorious nonsense that Silke somehow finds essential. The book includes 52 original pieces of artwork and an extensive selection of movie stills and images from private collections.
