A pillow book was meant to teach a young bride about the art of lovemaking. Small in size, the accordion-folded book 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 book from around 1900 quite rare. A simple mat and frame form the perfect backdrop for the book's 10 expressively drawn and detailed illustrations.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
