First published by Mr. Klaw as a Nutrix book in 1963, Dominating Tame-Azons Shame Men into Subjection tells the story of women who re-form men. The techniques of the professional husband-trainers (i.e., the Tame-Azons) in the narrative involve forced cross-dressing to subdue and restrain the aggressive tendencies of the males in their charge.
THE PLOT: Two wives with rude and arrogant husbands contract with a service that teaches men manners. Executives at Tame-Azons, Inc., initiate a training program that de-masculinizes the errant spouses by dressing them in tight-fitting rubber and leather costumes, often including waist-cinchers, stockings and high heels. The men don't like the regimen, but the instructors are irresistible. In the end, the husbands accept the household governance of their wives.
Unlike other stories involving forced cross-dressing, the males are not feminized. Here, the unpleasant aspects of their masculinity are bizarrely neutralized.
THE ART: Irving Klaw published work by the artist named Harry in the early 1960s. He signed his drawings with a capital H on a curled square of paper.
On a field of black, he carves his scenes and characters in white lines that comprise a modest geometry of shape and volume. Many of his figures are outlined with a thick white line, which suggests that he may have pasted drawings of characters on to backgrounds. However we may characterize his style or skill, his illustrations describe costumes, feelings and scenarios with the clarity and precision of an accomplished professional.
Where Mr. Bilbrew's fantasy divas are outrageously over the top, Harry's women, while stylish dressers, are more like actual royalty, imperious but reserved. Harry's dominant women are shown at work, providing wives with expert service, focused on the task at hand.
THE EBOOK: The original Nutrix booklet had about 60 pages — a typed story and more than 30 illustrations. It appears that the text was written after the drawings were made, but not everything shown in the pictures is included in the text. We've re-formulated the sturdy prose to more closely associate descriptions with related pictures. While the prose is presented in its original sequence, some pages have been divided, and individual paragraphs placed on separate ebook pages that precede the illustration they describe. The sequence of pictures has been revised to position each one with relevant text as possible.
The ebook offers opportunity to see the clever work of a little-known artist with substantial talent and an appealing point of view. Fans of illustrated fiction with either femdom or T-V themes will enjoy this visual treat.
