Chéri Hérouard was a French artist and illustrator of numerous erotica and spanking novels. He used the pseudonym Herric when he illustrated spanking novels for various French publishing houses, such as Jean Fort’s Collection des Orties Blanches. Below are his illustrations from the 1938 novel Venez ici, qu’on vous fouette! (Come here, We Shall Whip You!) by Jean Martinet.
Georges Topfer illustrations from the 1928 novel Les Malheurs de Colette (The Misfortunes of Colette) by Aimé Van Rod, which was first published in 1914. The cover illustration directly below was done by the artist Martin van Maële.
“Supple, biting, the three branches like three snakes entwined themselves with the plump flesh, which quivered. The loins of the castigated hollowed out, the head threw back, the convulsed features of the face expressed a nameless suffering and from the throbbing throat welled cries of distress and mad pain. Ruthless, as she had said, Mrs. Sharp, with furrowed brows, tight lips, bent over Colette, whipped her unhurriedly, forcefully, aiming and reaching for the plump tops of her rump.” – Excerpt from Les Malheurs de Colette
In 1930 the novel was translated to English under the title The Misfortunes of Colette, which features 8 illustrations by Eric Galton. Below you can see how Galton took inspiration from Topfer’s illustrations with the side-by-side comparisons.
Fontana was a well-known French BDSM and spanking artist. Below are his illustrations from the 1933 novel Le Pensionnat de Madame Clerval (Madame Clerval’s Boarding School) by Daisy Lennox.
“Madame de Clerval has opened a boarding school for young girls, which she is personally responsible for educating. In order for her young students to become fulfilled people, armed for life and useful to society, she has recourse to the means that she considers the most effective: meticulous hygiene, healthy food and the application of corporal punishment. Flogging is proving to be particularly effective in shaping the bodies and souls of these pretty girls, and their mistress herself appreciates the benefits.”
“But it is not only at boarding school that the whip is used with profit: to form ideal wives, some husbands demand complete submission and reserve the right to chastise those who deserve it. But marital spanking is not too brutal: it often ends in tender embraces. It even happens sometimes that the tables are reversed, and that they like to be flogged vigorously.”
Illustrations from the 1932 novel Miss Cravache ou Les Vierges Esclaves (Miss Whip or The Slave Virgins) by Jean de La Beuque.
The cover is illustrated by Ely Costes, while the novel is adorned with 12 inset heliogravures in sepia on loose sheets including a frontispiece by Georges Topfer. There are also 4 inset illustrations, decorated caps and chapter ends illustrated by Jean de La Beuque and Ely Costes which can be seen below in various pages from the novel.
It’s unclear if this is an older comic created when the characters of Carrot and Bev weren’t firmly established yet (they aren’t called by their names) or if this is an incomplete comic as it is missing a typical EndArt intro and outro page. I searched thoroughly, but this was all I could find.
