"Venus Bound" by John De St. Jorre




This is the book that made me said 'yes' to start my own publishing. Here is the story of Maurice Girodias and his press Olympia. He took a lot of authors out to cocktail lunches, lost a lot of money, always dressed well, had a love for both pornography and high art - really, a man I can truly admire. Maurice Girodias is my patron saint.  And my ruin as well of course.
