"The Illustrated Story of O" was written by Pauline Reage. The introduction was written by Jean-Jacques Pauvert, and the photographs are by Doris Kloster, who revolutionized the original "The Story of O" by shooting 50 photographs to go with the story that was originally written in 1954.
"The Illustrated Story of O" contains photos and small excerpts from the original novel. Jean-Jacques Pauvert, the original publisher for "The Story of O," managed to avoid censorship by the U.S. Department of the Interior when the novel was originally published. "The Story of O" is about a woman who experiments with sado-masochism.
