Recently I had the pleasure of photographing photos for the cover of ‘Benedetto Casanova - The Memoirs’! (Currently available for purchase for Kindle via Amazon.com) Soon to be released in paperback with additional artwork on the back cover :)

Below is the artwork for the cover as well as additional photos from my photo shoot with Rafael that you won’t find in the book!








Book Description:

No doubt you have heard of Casanova, the famous seducer of countless women, and maybe you have seen the movie, or read the account of his life. But did you know he had a gay brother? His memoirs were discovered only in 1881, when an English traveler rummaging through a private library in Rome found them glued to the pages of a book. They were written in Italian and have never before been published in English. Benedetto, a few years Giacomo’s junior, was pressed into service of the Church, to follow the famous lover of women through the courts of Europe. On the way he had amorous adventures with countless men, but, unlike his brother, fell in love and kept alive a romantic relationship with a strapping German soldier over time and distance.But this is more than a book about love in the 18th century — it is a book about commitment, and about equality. Rather ironically, Benedetto, the brother of that famous Casanova who only used women and never settled down with one, considered himself married to his lover, and refers to him as his husband.

This is why we have dedicated this edition of Benedetto to EQUALITY — and the most powerful campaign supporting it worldwide. Your purchase of this book will directly benefit Adam Bouska’s NOH8 campaign. It will help to spread the word that we need a fairer and juster world, in which everybody is respected — just what Benedetto Casanova dreamed of.
