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 cocooned man awaits the end of his training in a full leather body suit and hood. The only part of his body that is not covered are his feet, which are tied together at the ankles with rope. His arms are encased by the suit, held in a bag behind his back. He is balanced delicately on an apparatus like an oversized scale - a tether to the ceiling supports the bar his knees are draped over; another line to the point on his hood pulls his head toward the cross bar of the device. A third line to his ankles helps hold him in balance, suspended slightly above the floor.

A mistress gleefully leans over her squatting slave and pulls down his underwear while placing a foot on his head. His thighs are strapped to his chest to hold him bent over with his butt in the air. She brandishes a large paddle to take advantage of the situation.

Another dom points rather suggestively at another portion of her anatomy. She stands commandingly over the head of hair that is about to carry out her wishes.

This one shows a rather impudent dominatrix in a devil mask pointing suggestively at her rear. Well, we’ll just have to see who kisses what on who!

A prone man reaches up out of the shadows in worship toward the brightly lit image of his mistress’ face. It is as large as a goddess’; either she is projecting a photo as part of a training session, or he’s had some good peyote in the recent past. Her face is rather elaborately made up around her eyes; she wears an ornate headband and small balls dangling from chains as her earrings. No wonder she needs a slave; it must take forever to get that make up on properly…

"Get along, little doggie!" Mistress stands over her slave, who is kneeling on all fours. The crop in her hands is no doubt to encourage him to do just that. He looks out in shock over the broad leather gag harness covering most of his face. She must have told him they were going out for a walk in the neighborhood…

A latex clad dom crouches down in her chair and peers menacingly at the reader (smugly, too). “I’ll get you, and your little dog, too!” she seems to be thinking, while fingering the crop in her hands.

An introductory piece to another series of female domination pieces, this page includes some text beyond that included in the posted image. The following prose flows around the image of a man’s head and hands, bent down to floor level to hold and kiss his mistress’ stiletto heeled boot; he wears a sporty ring in his nose:
"THE BISHOP
In the past three decades, which are essentially the entire history of special interest adult publishing, no other artist has produced such volumes of work or has been so popularly known and copied as The Bishop. The sudden, and almost awesome popularity of this prolific young artist is no fluke. Each of his illustrations is a work of deep feeling, understanding and personal commitment, created with the precision of a mechanical designer and the smooth liquid beauty of a Renaissance master. Whenever a new idea catches his bizarre fancy, the inevitable sketch, complete with costume fantasies, traumatic circumstances and a bold beautiful dominatrix, is certain to evolve into an erotic experience.
One particular feature of The Bishop’s style is the exaggeration of certain figures and proportions in order to bring the ultimate in fantasy into focus, a technique reminiscent of some popular Japanese artists. These fantasies, presented in an exaggerated dramatic situation, are exactly what is desired of him. Neither The Bishop’s success nor his attainment of status as a young master in the field have jaded his sense of humor. Often, within an illustration of the most macabre scene, The Bishop will insert a delightful twist to lift the work and the situation to a level of pure erotic joy. We hope you enjoy this sample of The Bishop’s unique style.”
And we *DO*.

One of our donated images is from a page separated from an issue of HOGTIE. It accompanies a story; only the last few paragraphs are available to me. It seems that some innocent young man has encountered a violent dominatrix who has been severely abusing the gal of his dreams (her sister), and started to subject him to the same treatment. After strategically waiting for a bondage change, he decks the crazy b*tch only to find that “‘lil sis” doesn’t particularly appreciate being rescued… The illustration shows his surprise as she tries to claw his face off as he stands over the prone dom, holding her by her hair.
(The story at least has the virtue of having the man walk away from the crazy women…)

A starkly lit muscular couple await us here. He is kneeling on the floor, clad in only a few straps and a spandex hood. She is wearing nothing more than her stiletto heels (from the waist down, anyway); the shadows rather inconveniently remove the need for lingerie. <g> She stands ready behind him, with riding crop in hand.
