An artist book by Iannone that openly discusses her work in relation to censorship. In 1969 Iannone had been confronted with the confiscation of her works from an exhibition at Kunsthalle Bern. Her response was to publish a book about the episode, in which she made her perspective public and thus reclaimed self-determination over the content-related and formal aspects of her work, which had been labeled controversial. In this little book Iannone's sensual illustrations accompany an impassioned text. She calls for art and publishing to stand up for Eros: 'wouldn't we feel better if we could stand up for this life-loving part of ourselves'.
