Roland Brévannes was a French author and artist and one of the major contributors to early 20th century French spanking literature. Between 1903 and 1939 he wrote, illustrated and published about 100 erotic fetish novels in French, mostly of flagellation themes. He used the pseudonyms Don Brennus Aléra (an anagram of Roland Brévannes if the letter v is converted to a u) and Bernard Valonnes (also an anagram of Roland Brévannes if the letter é is converted to an e), he also used the names Paul Guérard. Jean d’Agerur, le Doctor Brennus, Don Brennus de Mellum and Pierrot.
He is also believed to be the man behind the illustrator names Tack, Esbey and Selby, the artist who illustrated as Mati for the book Fridoline, histoire véridique d’un jeune homme devenu actrice (published in 1926).
Finding art and built up collections for this artist is not an easy task (so far I have 11 albums and 131 artworks), even though he wrote and illustrated so many books, many are not online as complete set, and to my personal frustration some are online but with a watermark attached to the scan. Those who are members of my site know I try to share art in large format, without watermark and easy to download (of course in large format).
I am so glad I can announce adding a new album with 17 artworks to Roland Brevannes, for the book Fridoline, histoire véridique d’un jeune homme devenu actrice (published in 1926). Non members can enjoy these two free previews.
