Matti Louhi's erotic covers

I promised to post some erotic covers by the Finnish illustrator Matti Louhi. These are from the early seventies, from the Erotica series that was the first good series to introduce classic erotica to the Finnish audience. The first post is Josefine Mutzenbacher's memoir about her prostitute days in Vienna in the late 19th century. The book has at times been attributed to Felix "Bambi" Salten and Arthur Schnitzler.

Check out the series logo. I don't know who designed it.

Louhi also did a great erotic cover for Anthony Dekker's freakish thriller Temptation in a Private Zoo, but unfortunately I don't have that. I also lack papers for the great A Man with the Maid.
