Illustration from Fanny Hill by Édouard-Henri Avril

Here, especially for Scarlett Knight, is an illustration by the artist who went under the name of Paul Avril  (1843-1928) for an edition of Fanny Hill by John Cleland, published around 1908.

Swish! Thwack!


  1. Hahah! I love it! I got to try out my new little whip last night and have it tried out on me--it's quite fun after a couple glasses of wine ;)

  2. Nice illo. (Wouldn't he take the powdered wig off for the scene?)
