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.

Another *very* nice piece of work! A brunette stands demurely in front of a mirror, allowing a full view of the extensive combination of belts holding her arms securely behind her back, which also include a collar and crotch strap. She has a latex suit which covers her from the waist down, and knee boots. She is gagged by a leather strap covering her mouth with reinforcements running over her nose and under her chin. A silhouetted figure off to the side studies her (as well he should!). This appears to be the same lady we saw shopping for gags earlier, and I am pleased Bishop showed us the rest of her…

An exceptional piece of art - a gentleman in shirt and tie studies his captive’s eyes as he kneads her breast. He can only study her eyes, as the rest of her face is covered by an extensive gag harness that includes a broad collar. The top of the harness has a long strap, joined to the captive’s wrists and forcing her to arch her head backward. She is naked except for her bonds, and we cannot see her footwear or restraints, although one can imagine she is hobbled to keep her from kicking.

A profile of a gagged woman, with an interesting twist. Our captive is gagged by a leather appliance that buckles over a gag harness that includes a blindfold. The image of the harness before the cover was applied is superimposed on the side of her face. Interestingly enough, the gag built into the harness appears to be a hollow plug, allowing further access to her mouth…

Another brunette presses her eyes together and fervently cries out in alarm through the sponge gag in her mouth. Her captor is busily wrapping a knotted cloth around her face to hold the sponge in place, and is otherwise ignoring her protest.

A busty brunette kneels on the floor with her ankles tied crossed beneath her. She arches her back to display her ample breasts, both from the tension of the single sleeve on her arms and the force of her captor forcing a plug gag into her mouth. Her muscular body sports a “SOLD” sticker plastered on her bottom.

A captive wearing a sweater and platform shoes sits awkwardly on… something. (A partial wall in the middle of her dungeon?) Her arms are held in a single sleeve, and her legs are pinned by a hobble skirt laced tightly from her ankles to her crotch. She is gagged by a training harness sporting a ball gag, and looks down to study her bonds. I doubt she will find any escape…

A blonde looks in shock at the plug her mistress is forcing into her mouth. Her arms are wrapped in a leather bag slung behind her back, and she wears those nifty stiletto thigh boots, currently unhobbled.

A brunette dejectedly kneels on the floor, her legs crossed beneath her and her knees spread by the belts wrapped around her thighs and ankles. A single sleeve laced and belted into place keeps her arms out of the way.

A short haired brunette models Bishop’s other example of a cloth gag. This illustrates Bishop’s point that when cloth alone is used to gag a captive, it must be pulled tightly into the mouth and tied off just as tightly. If not, the captive can work the cloth out of her mouth. And we wouldn’t want that, would we?
This lady also has a very svelte neck. I’d have liked to see Bishop draw the rest of her…

A pixieish blonde looks wide eyed over the tape covering most of her face. Bishop instructs that tape must be properly applied to be effective - it must wrap around the entire head, and multiple strips must be used to cover the mouth and prevent the lips from being worked free.
She has a very nice throat, don’t you think?
