Celebrating #NationalPoetryDay and also referencing our own ongoing fascination with all things erotic, here’s a glance towards Pybrac, by Pierre Louys.

This book was first published posthumously in 1927, and was named as the filthiest collection of poetry ever published.The images shown here are of the 1932 edition.

The 31 hand colored illustrations by Marcel Vertes did justice to the poems.
