About the series...

Shibari is the Japanese-inspired art of tying a subject to not only immobilize them, but to do so elegantly and beautifully - creating an intimate and erotic experience for both the subject and the person tying.

Adopted by rope enthusiasts all over the world, shibari (literally "to tie” or "to bind”) is a cornerstone of erotic rope art and the subject of captivating performances and photographs. However, in-depth resources for learning the art are difficult to obtain, making shibari intimidating, obscure and difficult to master...

Until now.

The Complete Shibari series is the most complete and accessible English-language guide to shibari ever published. Author Douglas Kent strips away shibari's mystery and reveals how to create visually stunning compositions with rope and the human form… in your own home or play space.

    Fantastic book

    After years of traveling and visiting shows, and dungeons, I have seen some really awesome rope Masters. But learning the ropes on the fly is no safe way to learn. Douglas' book offers a chance to explore and learn at a comfortable and safe pace.

    This is a wonderful book for the beginner in rope. From explaining the basic principals, covering the fundamental physics, and illustrating the basic knots needed. Douglas takes you on a step by step journey, each move illustrated with photographs of actual rope bottoms being tied.

    I started buying Douglas' books years ago, and his shibari series is no exception to his no non-sense, direct education practices.

    I recommend this book to anyone who seeks to learn the art of shibari.
