Aphrodisia’s Fantasy Females

A nude woman with long red hair sits in a magical forest setting. A barbarian woman in a skeletal bird headdress wields a large sword. A woman in a red leather corest plays with a small demon creature. A bare-breasted bird woman kisses a parrot.

Aphrodisia, a compendium highlighting the “art of the female form” was recently released by Aristata Publishing. The full-color tome is brimming with a wide array of fantasy, pin-up, and contemporary illustrations, submitted by an equally broad selection of artists.

Works presented in the book were selected by art luminaries Joe Chiodo, Spencer Davis, Frank Frazetta Jr., Greg Hildebrandt, Bud Plant, and editor Craig Elliott.

Several artists appearing in Aphrodisia have been featured here at Lucid Skin, and several newcomers will undoubtedly be seen. A second book is planned, with a call for artists already underway. Fortunately, the female form is an unlimited source of inspiration!

Aristata Publishing’s website seems to have fallen into disrepair.
