Stephen Thrower: FLOWERS OF PERVERSION Deluxe Edition


Deluxe Edition 2018 512pp Strange Attractor 4to hardback. Illustrated with 520 colour and black & white photographs. Slight mark to edge of textblock else NM in NM dustwrapper (which is exclusive to this edition).


Ltd. Ed. 293/500, signed by the author on separate limitation card. The second volume in Stephen Thrower’s monumental study of Jess Franco’s cinematic delirium, covering the years 1975 to his death in 2013.


Jesús “Jess” Franco is an iconic figure in world cinema. His sexually charged, fearlessly personal style of filmmaking has never been in vogue with mainstream critics, but for lovers of the strange and sado-erotic he is a magician, spinning his unique and disturbing dream worlds from the cheapest of budgets. Each film has a synopsis, cast and credits, music, shooting notes plus a full review and discussion of each films place in the Franco cannon.


This edition includes an extra book The Sinister Case of Dr. Franco, (100pp 4to hardback. Illustrated, pictorial boards. NB. Knocked on fore edge) featuring a facsimile of items left behind at Hotel Quetzal in Southern France during the shooting of Mandinga in 1975. Jess and Lina Romay left the hotel in a hurry abandoning a suitcase containing numerous script treatments, story outlines and poster ideas, all of which are reproduced, annotated and made public here for the first time. Also included is a set of six colour postcards of artwork from various Franco films.
