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.

The first is the title art for a story titled, “Wager”. The young lady in question must have lost her wager, and has been bound to fulfill the bargain. She still has her clothes, but her sweater does little to restrain her ripe breasts, and her short skirt rides up to offer a peek at her panties. She is restrained with tape, which pins her arms together to her back and helps hold the gag strapped into her mouth in place.

This is the inside cover art for an issue of “Cinch”; I have no idea which issue this appeared in, but it’s nice, ain’t it? A woman wearing only her thigh boots and arm sleeve squats on the floor with her knees pulled up to her chest; a ball gag keeps her relatively quiet. Her hair billows around her head, keeping it off her back so you can get a good look at her trapped arms.
I’ve a few “stragglers” that I have no real idea on which magazines they appeared in. This is as good a spot to post them in as any…

This is the other illustration for the story, showing a wrist and ankle-cuffed Melody being led from the room…

Another color illustration is the title artwork for “Plaintive Melody”, a short story about a young woman applying for a teaching position at a “figure training academy”. “…if you wish to instruct, you must first learn to obey,” the Madame of the academy declares, and has her immediately stripped and bound. I have only one page of the text, so don’t ask me anything more about the story… This artwork has already appeared as BISH0221, but not in color.

This is a color illustration for a brief article titled “The Bondage Club”. The club “rules”, which were cropped on the page and therefore edited out of this image, detail how the members will be judged on their performance with their partners.
The painting is of a topless captive lashed to a sign-post for the club. She has latex thigh boots and panties, and is tied to the post with rope with one leg tied up to her bottom. She is gagged with a cloth tied through her mouth.

We continue with posts from “Bound to Please”, this time from volume 2, number 1. The inside cover artwork shows a man tightening the strap pulling his captive’s arms up behind her shoulderblades. She’s already gagged by a leather harness whose wide straps hold a sponge in her mouth. Her breasts are rather too large for her to be running around without a bra, but she obviously didn’t recognize the need for one when she dressed that morning.

Another illustration for “Interview”: Our comely slave sways her hips as she walks, hobbled, away from the reader.

Leading artwork for an “article” written by “Nob”. “Interview” pretends to be a personal interview between the writer and a lovely young slave. Unfortunately, I have only two pages of what appears to be an extensive text piece, which begins very tantalizingly; our slave welcomes her interviewer with the news that her master has ordered her to serve him - in *every* way… and she’s only too willing to oblige, as her bondage becomes “boring” without personal attention.
Why don’t *I* ever get opportunities like this? <g>
Anyway, the art is of another extremely busty submissive (maybe it’s the same lady from the cover art), kneeling on the floor while her interviewer sits in a plush chair, feverishly taking notes while his eyes are bugging out. She really is quite lovely, with her elbows strapped behind her and her hands chained together in front of her brief corset.
A *very* nice piece of art!

First of a series of scans from &#8220;Bound to Please&#8221;, volume 1, number 11. The inside cover artwork shows an extremely busty woman kneeling on the floor in her bondage. She is bound with cloth strips that wind around her legs and fold them up underneath her. Her arms are similarly pinned together behind her back, and more straps hold sponges over her eyes and in her mouth to gag her.
