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 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.

The inside cover artwork for an issue of &#8220;Hogtie&#8221; (volume 2, number 11, to be exact), shows a woman in a leather &#8220;bikini&#8221;, with her arms in sleeves pulled wrapped around her body and fastened to a body harness strapped around her. A ball gag muffles her cries.

This drawing appeared in an issue of &#8220;Hogtie&#8221;. The art for a poem by &#8220;Nob&#8221; titled &#8220;History Lesson&#8221;, it depicts a Roman slave girl standing bound on the stage for auction. The poetry should still be *just* readable, and relates a tourist&#8217;s fascination as she imagines herself in that position while touring the ancient site.

A rather attractive woman looks out in shock over the gag harness being strapped over her face. The low cut on the top she&#8217;s wearing leads me to believe that she&#8217;s a dancer who&#8217;s been taken while at the dance studio. Her new master studies her while his henchman finishes fastening the gag. A ball is about to be snapped over the tube spreading her lips, and her tongue lolls invitingly through the opening before it is sealed.
