With hundreds of rare and extraordinary images culled from his influential 24-year career, this volume illustrates the story of the first black career fetish artist in history: Gene Bilbrew, a.k.a. "Eneg," a man whose unique vision redefined cutting-edge art of the 1950s and 60s.

Tracing his life from childhood in Los Angeles to his vocal group days with The Mellow Tones and the Basin Street Boys, to his sudden rise as a "bizarre art" rebel in New York City, GENE BILBREW REVEALED presents a vibrant overview of his work for renegade publishers Irving Klaw, Leonard Burtman, Edward Mishkin and Stanley Malkin, while also exploring his sometimes contentious, love-hate relationship with fellow art pioneer Eric Stanton.

GENE BILBREW REVEALED is a must-have visual experience for underground comic art fans, pulp art collectors, enthusiasts of outsider art, and, of course, lovers of classic vintage fetish art.

From vintage fetish art specialist, Richard Prez Seves, author of Eric Stanton & the History of the Bizarre Underground, and CHARLES GUYETTE: Godfather of American Fetish Art (both available now on Amazon).
