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.

“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.”
