SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.—The second issue of stylish fetish magazine Von Gutenberg is now on the streets, featuring Ashley Fires as the cover girl. Fires, joined by Princess Donna, Marissa, January Seraph and Foxy Squire, graces the pages with exquisite photo shoots and some very personal interviews. The fetish photography of Ken Marcus and Dirk Hopper makes great eye candy, along with the astounding illustrations of fetish artist Lorenzo Sperlonga.

In this issue, there are in-depth articles about the Goth subculture and the fetish scene in Greece, along with exclusive coverage of international fetish events and parties. Not to be missed are Charles Gatewood’s article on the burlesque scene and Midori’s Euro fetish event survival guide. And as always, the couture is risqué and fashion-forward—this issue highlights Syren Couture, Ego Assassin and Vex Clothing.

“The Von Gutenberg Fetish weekend kept us so busy with all the planning that getting the second issue of Von Gutenberg magazine published shortly after the event was a ride in pure adrenaline for me and my team,” says entrepreneur, publisher and Von Gutenberg contributor Erik Von Gutenberg.

“The 2010 Fetish Ball was definitely the event of the season,” he continued. “It really helped us put the finishing touches on the magazine—by the time it was all over, we knew we were on the pulse of the fetish scene with both our parties and publications. We’re already working on the third issue and know with each magazine, our presence, readership and list of advertisers grow. It’s very exciting and we’re loving every minute of the ride.”

Published quarterly by Erik Von Gutenberg, promoter and director of Von Gutenberg Couture in San Francisco, Von Gutenberg is a high-end and edgy publication that explores alternative fashion, lifestyles and brings new life to the Bay Area fetish scene and the world over. Von Gutenberg is available at Barnes & Noble and Borders booksellers and specialized retailers throughout the U.S. and retails for $19.

The magazine also can be purchased in Europe at such establishments as Blackstyle Shop in Berlin, Domination in Munich and De Mask Shop in Amsterdam. And a recent partnership with Fiend magazine has allowed Von Gutenberg to be purchased throughout Australia.
