Images I Like - Imitation - Sincerest Form...


Cover art Eric Stanton Escape into Bondage, Man to Maiden cover


It is a bit cliche, but it has been said that "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." So one of the things I find so amazing is when I see images that I have loved and then realized that they are much older, and in many cases, it is litterally an image that has been copied and reworked.


Such is the case with a cover of the 80s Feminization movie I have posted earlier, Man to Maiden. By clicking on the link, you can find my write up on the movie. Then when going through images for my Tumblr, I would this cover art work for "Escape into Bondage, Book II". These were a pair of illustrated books by famed fetish artist, Eric Stanton, and published in 1963 by H-H Associates.


So as you can see in the side by side, the core position and staging of the image is striking. I took it one step further, scaled the images to roughly the same size, and then overlayed and made the Escape cover semi-transparent, and you can see for yourself - the two images line up almost perfectly. It looks like the artwork for Man to Maiden was the Eric Stanton artwork which then had a different background done to create the dungeon, moved and reworked the Mistress in the background and then slightly drew over new clothes and other minor adjustments.
