Das Kamasutram des Vatsyayana Mallanaga

Das Kamasutram des Vatsyayana Mallanaga


The Kamasutram is the standard work on human sexual behaviour. This German translation by Johann Schmidt is considered the best European translation ever. With the cool illustrations by the artist Florian Althans arose a modern interpretation. Self confident, cheeky, but as if they were frozen, the strange cyclops gaze at us and take away any chance of voyeurism. The minimalistic graphics shows everything and and yet nothing. An aesthetic erotic, which interprets the lovemaking in an artful way.

Statement of the jury

A fantastic work that enables readers to rediscover and experience this classic in a new way thanks to its fresh, contemporary illustrations and a good measure of self-irony. Never before has the Kamasutram been presented in this fashion.
