Little hand-crafted books of sensual prose-poetry
I have always loved Anais Nin and Henry Miller, and their forays into erotic literature. I sold my little books at Literary Festivals and got interviewed on the radio. The reception was very good. Fast forward 25 years and I have relaunched my small press as PocketErotica, an imprint of 8D Press. I commission writers and then typeset and hand-design, hand-make and bind the little books myself. Everything is done by myself at my Studio in Fife, Scotland.
I love the tactile feel of making little limited edition books by hand. It's calming, empowering and a beautiful experience. I love erotic literature and sensuality, the beauty of all things, from food to landscapes, aromas and sounds.
PocketErotica is about the empowerment of women and our sexuality, the very fact that we indulge in body pleasure as a testament to life on our own terms, in any way we so choose, whether we live secrets lives or are happy in our relationships. We love how we want. Without sensuality, life is one-dimensional.
