Hillbilly Kama Sutra

Well someone had to do it. In this case it’s Missouri woodcut artist, Tom Huck, with the redneck take on that fine erotic classic, the Kama Sutra. Tom Huck’s Evil Prints has been “disgusting the masses since 1995,” and long may it continue the noble enterprise. The full portfolio of 15 linoleum cuts will set you back $11,500, but there are only 20 signed sets available. It represents, apparently, 2 year’s work.

Here is Huck talking about the project.

They look brilliant, but they’re completely out of my range. I’m reminded of the Robert Crumb comics, which in the 60s and 70s I considered too ephemeral to treat as more than just comics. If only I’d kept them – now they’re worth a fortune.

But I did track down one of the most memorable images, through the magic of the internet, for your viewing pleasure. It chimes quite nicely with the theme of Hillbilly Kama Sutra, as well as providing a certain moral uplift in its celebration of strong family bonds (including the dog).
