If not, what’s your excuse? He put the WHOLE FRIKKIN’ BOOK online, for people to page through. However, if you look at this, and go “hmm, nice, now I’ve seen it, no need for a book…” you’re doing yourself and the rest of us a disservice.
Really. I was lucky enough to get an original (and autographed) copy of David’s first book, BOUND, back in the day. I say “lucky” because right now there’s something like 3 left – they’re rarer than the single hot bi babe looking for a no-strings attached meaningful poly relationship with a het-male/bi-female couple. Or so I hear.
BOUND remains, to this day, the most beautifully laid-out bondage photography book I’ve ever held in my hands – and I’ve held quite a few, it ‘s the nature of what I do. Holding that book and diving into the pages is an immersive experience. It calls for a well-appointed parlor furnished in leather and oak, a roaring fireplace, a glass of fine whiskey at the table beside you as you page through it with your naked submissive looking over your arm, oohing and aaahing and saying “Hey, could you do that to me?”
And the answer is no, because David is an original, but it’s sure fun tryin’. So as you look at these images on the screen, enjoy them, admire the fine artistry of this master of both rope and lens, but don’t cheat yourself out of the pleasure of actually holding the book in your hands. Yeah, I know the economy is crap. Yeah, I know we’re all pinching pennies. But what are we pinching them for, if not to invest in the quality things in life? The rich experiences, the epicurean delights that inspire our imagination and fantasies?
Things like reBOUND. I’ve got my copy of BOUND. If you don’t have yours, I feel sorry for you (and by the way, to the person who I loaned my copy to: I would like it back soon, please). But you can be one of we few, we happy few, who has reBOUND on the shelf. I promise you, you won’t regret it.
And as you can read below, the best of the bondage world agree with me:
