This blog reposts a collection of famed bondage artist Robert Bishop, most often just called "The Bishop".
The images were posted some years ago on alt.binaries.pictures.erotica.bondage by Hunter Rose, an avid collector of Bishop's art.

Since the originals were destroyed by the artist prior to committing suicide at age 46, these scans comprise most of what is still available of Bishop's work.

The collection had at a time wide circulation on the Internet, but the comments of Hunter Rose were often lost in the process. Here the AFAIK complete set of 1359 images will be reposted, together with the comments of Hunter Rose.

Of course, all this posts are to be considered NSFW.

This appears to be a companion piece to BISH0672, although enough elements have changed to make our captive a tennis player instead of a college cheerleader. Similarly pigtailed and gagged, her hands are now bound in front of her to allow her to obey her new master’s first command. She looks up with frightened eyes as she pulls the zipper on the thigh boot she has just pulled on closed. Her sneaker lies discarded in front of her, and her other boot is draped over her other leg. A ball gag lies between her legs, waiting for the command to her to put it on.

This one shows a pigtailed cheerleader in bondage. This copy of the artwork was taken from an issue of Harmony’s “Bondage Life” magazine, so it includes the caption “The Harmony Mode As Seen By Bishop” which does not appear in the “Bishop on Bondage” issue. Our captive’s sweater bears the letters “BDU” and she is bound and gagged with elastic strips with her arms behind her back. Her legs are free for the time being, perhaps leading to… tomorrow’s first posting…

This appears on the same page with the introduction, and was the cover art for the HOM “Tyler” novel “Ropedance” (Tyler #2). (Nifty title, eh?) A woman’s leg, wearing a black patent leather high heel and leg warmer, is restrained by a chain running away from it.

One of two pieces of art that accompany Bishop’s introduction for this issue. In it he mentions the “Bishop Ultimate Collection”, making comment that it was not as “ultimate” as it pretended, and that he had no control over the contents of the book. It included older line-art that Bishop believed “should have had the decency to have expired in anonymous quiet in HOM’s vault of stuff that had seen it’s best days…”. He continues to say that, now that he’s in charge of this magazine, he now has only himself to blame…
Also noting that he only had copies of his work from the scattered appearances in various magazines, “a collection within two covers makes a certain amount of sense, I suppose”.
"As I said earlier, you may have seen some of them or even all of them, but at least now you don’t have to go through twenty-five books to find them all. I hope you like it. Some of my better efforts are in here. Some of them I’m not even ashamed of."
I’ll chime in to say that I agree that some of Bishop’s better artwork appeared in this magazine. This particular piece shows a woman’s cuffed hands behind her back. She wears a pinstriped jacket, presumably putting this situation at the work place. This artwork also appeared as the cover art for the HOM “Tyler” novel “Corporate Captives” (Tyler #4).

The inside cover artwork for the magazine: A brunette with a long ponytail stands with her collar held by a tether to the wall. A latex harness circles her breasts, and a wide latex strap holds a gag in her mouth. A long feather dangles on the wall; she studies it intently, obviously not looking forward to being tormented with it.

"Bishop on Bondage" volume 1, number 4 was logically enough followed by volume 1, number 5. This is the last magazine in the series, more’s the pity. Here is the cover for number 5: A full color piece of art, we see the lower torso and crotch of a woman wearing a latex catsuit. Her wrists are circled by metal bands, chained together behind her back and held to the small of her back by her belt. Similar belts wrap tightly around her thighs, apparently forming a hobble. The helpfully placed zipper down the center of the suit is enticingly open to show the smooth skin just above her crotch, hinting of the delights about to be exposed…

Yep! Another close-up gives you a closer look at our captive, both before and after being bound. Cute!

The inside back cover art for the magazine: An insert in the corner shows a young equestrienne being led, with her wrists bound and ankles hobbled, into a barn. The rest of the image shows the young lady lying bound on the straw, looking anxiously through a crack in the boards for some hope of a rescue. Her captor has folded her legs up and strapped them ankle to thigh with a saddle strap, and thoroughly bound her arms together behind her back. Her captor has very thoughtfully torn away her blouse, giving us a nice view of her breasts and firm stomach. Her tie tastefully dangles between her cleavage. A cloth band, presumably from her own blouse, wraps around her mouth and a set of lines in the shape of a bridle hold it into place. A riding crop lies in front of her, promising her ill treatment if she misbehaves…

This is (what else?) a close-up of the woman in question. I guess I forgot to mention the wide collar her armsleeve is anchored to, as well as the latex strap digging deeply into her crotch. Please forgive me. <g>
