Sexy, subversive, and sensational wrestling
Discover the world of wrestling that was too hot for T.V.! Photographer Theo Ehret’s fabulous archives have been dug up by artists Cameron Jamie and Mike Kelley and brought together for the first time in publication. Not only will you see the most famous wrestlers of the 60s and 70s in action, but you’ll learn all about a sub-genre of pro wrestling known as “apartment wrestling.” Pitting voluptuous bikini-clad women against one another in a staged photography set, apartment wrestling is what many a male fantasy is made of, and there is no better way to appreciate the merits of this unique and rare “sport” than in the classic photographs of Theo Ehret.
With over 400 illustrations, an essay on wrestling by Roland Barthes, biographical photos, and an interview of Ehret, “Exquisite Mayhem” is not just for wrestling fans – its a spectacular adventure into a lesser known side of one of Americas most popular forms of entertainment.
