DESIGN BEHIND DESIRE is a beautifully conceived book about wanting, longing, yearning, generating and fulfilling of a highly sexual and erotic nature and, as an entity within itself, becomes an object of desire as each sensuously laden page is turned. It both demonstrates and embodies desire by exploring the most beautiful objects of and for desire where integrity, beauty, sexuality and sensuality are at the heart of the creations. Many of the striking objects that are depicted are quite dark, bondage inspired, some surreal, others delicate, there are voluptuous pieces and there are one or two eccentric but never the less brilliant creations. All are united in the strength of their vision, conceptual depth and a high degree of craftsmanship with desire and sexuality at their core. Each curated object inspires the imagination, which is the nourishment and fountain of our desires well-being.

LISA Z. MORGAN is an artist and co-founder of Strumpet & Pink. The subject and object of desire has been a palpable constant within her artistic, commercial and consultancy work both as a motivation and in it's embodiment or articulation.
