Hans Braun's SpankingsErotica // Monday, 18 Jun 2012
'Hans Braun, a civil engineer from Munich in Germany, says that he went to a school where corporal punishment was an established part of the curriculum and later learned to draw in a rudimentary way at the college of engineering. Structures were his professional interest but the structure and form of female bottoms became a private obsession - perhaps just because they had been so notably absent in his monastic schooldays. His knowledge of the architecture of the bottom comes from the bedroom, he informs us, rather than from life classes of an art school. He likes to regard himself as an enthusiastic amateur in relationship to the subject matter illustrated here.'
