Irish Erotic Art: When You Care Enough To Give The Very Least...!

Shortly before his untimely death, the great art critic, scholar, and raconteur Seamus O'Gallagher McGuire Cork said: "Let's face it, most erotic art is, well, dirty. But the long-hidden masterpieces of Irish Erotic Art reflect a purity, nay of chastity, of style and content unheard of in countries like Italy or France, if you get my drift."

After years of diligent research and at little or no risk to his personal safety, Cork compiled the definitive work on this most neglected field of study. Her at last is the famous Passion of St. Bridget as well as such little known or previously undiscovered masterpieces as The Peat Gatherer's Honeymoon, Molly's Bloomers, Behind the Lace Curtains, and The Bombed Bordello.

Every work presented in this sensitive yet evocative volume-even the recently acclaimed triptych, Contraception and How It Causes Cancer-has been scrutinized by a Green Ribbon Panel of religious leaders of all denominations worthy of the name, as well as a hand-plucked group of Hiberian laymen.

When you care enough to give the very least, Irish Erotic Art is the perfect present for anybody's favorite Irishman!

About the author (1981)

Seamus O'Gallagher McGuire Cork was tragically strangled only a few steps away from St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York just before the final selections for his masterpiece were completed. He was educated in Dublin but spent many of his last years in America, summering in Queens, New York, with frequent winter vacations in Boston and Chicago.
