    A fully illustrated Kama Sutra from the extraordinary and rare art collection of Lance Dane

    • The first complete translation to illustrate all 64 sexual postures described in the Kama Sutra

    • Includes 269 rare images

    • Composed by one of the world’s foremost scholars of the Kama Sutra and Indian art

    The erotic sentiments described in the Hindu love classic the Kama Sutra constitute the most famous work on sex ever created. Written almost 2,000 years ago, the Kama Sutra deals with all aspects of sexual life, including the principles and techniques of sexual pleasure and how to best achieve ecstatic expression of life’s beauty.

    In this complete and illustrated guide Lance Dane accompanies the Kama Sutra text with 269 illustrations and great works of art that encompass coins, palm leaf manuscripts, sculptures, ancient toys, jewelry, architecture, ivory combs, birch bark, cloth, paintings, frescoes, and scrolls. Gathered from museums and private collections around the world—as well as the author’s own collection of over 300,000 photographs—these rare images clearly illustrate all 64 sexual positions and the erotic instructions set forth in the Kama Sutra. The result is a dazzling and sensuous reading experience through which the teachings of the Kama Sutra spring to life.

    • Karma Sutra

      The book was well illustrated, was well written. I purchased the book for my boyfriend for his birthday. The only thing that was wrong with it was the binding is so poor, that I'm ashamed to give it to him. This is the first book that I've bought from overstock that I can honestly say that I'm disappointed in.
