Erotically themed pillow books were often given to newlyweds in China as "how-to" manuals. Miniature in size, the books could be kept discreetly close at hand, stashed under couple’s pillows. Erotic art in China goes back centuries, but much of it was destroyed during the Maoist era, making this beautifully rendered print from the 1920s quite rare. The simple mat and frame form the perfect backdrop for the vibrant colors and detailed illustration.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
