"The clitoris is like an iceberg; only the tip is visible on the outside, its larger mass is... under the surface."
So begins this absolutely delightful book on the clitoris and women's sexual anatomy. We learned about Laura Szumowski's smart little illustrated books from the exhibition "EveryBody!: Visual resistance in feminist health movements, 1969-2009" curated by Bonnie Fortune at Ispace in Chicago and now we'll be carrying multiple books by this artist.
Tip of the Iceberg takes an informative, original, and highly entertaining approach to women's sexuality and health, filled with important information and whimsical drawings that possess a great sense of humor (the last page features an invitation to "Join us tonight for: Orgasm the Muscle Spasm - performing live at the Clitoris!"). A suggested reading list is also included.
