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.

A rather classic piece of Bishop artwork. I don’t know how many places it was printed, but many regard it to be *the* definitive Bishop work.
Two blonde women (twin sisters, perhaps?) are forced into a bizarre predicament by a non-chalant man. The elements of their bondage are rather simple, but the way they are combined makes for a spectacular scene!
One woman is strapped lying face down on a platform with her ass held high and her head strapped to a phallic outcropping at the base of a pole mounted on the platform. Her companion stands awkwardly over her, held in place by cords running from the pole and a belt around the first woman’s waist to rings piecing her genitals and nipples. A chain hanging from her nose dangles between the first’s thighs, hinting that the two are about to be forced to become rather intimate by means of this set of piercings. Their captor pushes down on the head of the standing woman, guiding the huge phallus jutting out from her gag to its ultimate destination. Both women’s faces show their horror at this ordeal.
(Some time ago, a poster asked for any pictures of re-enactments of Bishop scenes with real models. This scene is the only one that I know of to be re-enacted (minus all the piercings, of course), but I could not find a copy of the photo when I looked for it.)
This is such a seminal piece of Bishop artwork that I thought it warranted separate close-ups for each captive.

This is the illustration for a short story titled, “Perfect”. The story appeared in an issue of “Knotty” or “Hogtie”, but I do not have it at my disposal.
Herein we see the predicament described in the text about to inflicted upon our captive. This takes place at a very exclusive club in the orient, which the story’s author found himself inexplicably invited to. The young lady, after introducing herself to each table is taken to the stage and then bound naked on her back with her arms lashed together behind her and her legs spread and stretched out over her head. After relentlessly spanking and teasing her, the proprietor is about to insert a wide candle in her anus so that the wax can burn down and eventually run over her genitals.
After the ordeal, she makes another tour of the tables, and our witness, expressing his concerns learns that she feels “perfect”…

A rather tasty painting of a man fondling his naked captive. She’s been economically immobilized by straps around her knees and ankles, and her padded wrists are clipped to an anchor in the wall over her head. They are lingering by an open window, perhaps to enjoy the fresh air, perhaps to taunt her with the possibility of being seen and rescued. He teases an erect nipple with one hand while caressing her groin with the other. Her long, feathered hair flows all the way down her back to her knees as she chews on a wiffle ball stretching her mouth wide.

A close-up of this image. (At least I’m consistant, right?…) Our captive looks out anxiously over the strands of hair dangling over her face.

A slender young blonde bound on her captor’s silken bedsheets. Her collar is tied off to a ring set on one side of the bed, while her cuffed hands are tied off to a ring on the other. Her elbows are also cuffed together; undoubtedly a very uncomfortable arrangement. Her ankles are likewise tied off to opposite ends of the bed, with an additional tether running from one ankle to a cuff clamped to a toe. A flowered garter clings to one leg, and a cheerful bow to the strap of her ball gag.

A rather classic image of a plaintive woman, bound on a rocky shore. Her wrists are bound to a beam fastened to an outcropping of rock. Her ankles are chained, and a robe fastened to the metal band around her neck billows around her. A broad leather gag strap keeps her from calling out to the sailboat on the horizon.

A portion of this image appears as the cover art to the HOM novel “Candice in Custody” (HIT 167). A tall blonde stands awkwardly inside a hat stand. The ring mounted to the pole to prop up umbrellas also serves to corral her legs. She’s nude, except for the opera gloves tied behind her back and the thigh boots…
