„These prints are exceptionally beautiful and it would be hard to take offence at the rich, deluxe images of luxury and sensual pleasure.

These are jewel-like pieces. These prints were produced at great expense using the best quality materials - the colours are rich and the

surface shimmers with gold, metallic inks and rich, double printing. Each sheet is a fine impression and condition and colour are all very fine.“
