The Chinese tradition of the pillow book was venerable when it inspired the Kama Sutra and other Indian writings that have since won fame in the West. This guide goes back to the source-the original scrolls written and illustrated for the erotic education of Chinese nobles thousands of years ago. The lessons left by these ancient artists teach sexual techniques for achieving fulfillment and maximizing life energies, knowledge as valuable now as it was then. This new translation presents the essence of the originals in a clear and sophisticated manner, with exquisite full-color illustrations. Almost five millennia ago, Chinese artists specialised in the writing and illustration of love scrolls pillow books for the use of the ruling classes.
