Item description for Katlick School by Sante D'Orazio Glenn O'Brien...
There is something powerfully erotic about Catholic schoolgirl uniforms. The blazer and sweater, the immaculate white shirt, the pleated skirt, the knee socks and athletic shoes are the stuff of legend. It's a charming fetish, as psycho-sexually resonant as the black motorcycle jacket or the nurse's uniform. Intended to bring equal status to the student body, and to induce its wearers to behave, the uniform embodies a nascent rebellion against sexual repression. With Katlick School, Sante D'Orazio has produced a witty visual narrative of flirtation, starring a beautiful Latina schoolgirl named Kat. She holds her notebook like a shield to ward off advances. But with her skirt hiked up and snaps-not buttons-on her shirt, there's a hint of come-hither. We soon discover that the pleated skirt conceals "Snoopy" bikini underwear and a tattoo. Kat is willing to trade her trainers for thigh-high spike heeled boots-and as the fantasy unfolds-we get to see her entirely out of uniform. Obviously she is committed to rounding out her education...As the Red Hot Chili Peppers sang, "Catholic school girls rule!"

Reviews - What do customers think about Katlick School?
If art is anything that evokes an emotion..... Jun 21, 2007
Then this book is successful. Obviously, the other reviewers so far hate it, but I disagree. I'm not going to go into long justifications of why this book is great -- either you get it or you don't. It's a matter of personal taste, but in my opinion this is well worth having in a collection.
Waste of bookshelf space Feb 2, 2007
This book is absolutely pathetic. There is nothing remotely erotic about any of the pictures. A lot of the pics are out of focus and I doubt that is what was intended. Esquire magazine had a favorable review of this book which is the only reason I picked it up.
Horribly Disappointed!! Dec 28, 2006
Let me start by saying that it pains me to write this review. I LOVE Sante's photography and his previous books (which I own) are brilliant. This is such a missed opportunity that it blows my mind. Yes, many have associated the Catholic school girl outfit with fantasies.. I get it... but where are the fantasies?!?! The book looks like it was shot entirely in one day with a model that couldn't be more bored or undirected as to why she was there with a camera pointed at her in the first place. This school girl genre was so ripe for a clever, sexy story told with pictures.. or an essay of the gradual flow of the innocence of the school girl to the discovery of herself as a woman.. or the good girl/bad girl theme. There was no attempt at all to be playful, teasing, sexy, naughty, or just clever in any way with the photos. The book itself is very well made.. great stock was used and it feels like a quality art book. Unfortunately it's almost completely empty inside of what I believe many buyers of this book are hoping to get. I'm sadly returning mine tomorrow.
this guy is an artist ?!? Dec 21, 2006
this book is terrible. one girl. 2 outfits. and a handful of nudes. boring! the poses are lame and the "overexposed film" look as art? puh-lease. then if that's the case, i have a drawer full of art at the end of every roll of film i've ever shot. do your self a favor and buy [...] instead. it is a vastly superior book. and "playboy" should be ashamed of themselves for putting this in their last issue as a book worth buying. they along with the photographer of this book should refund my money. [...] and i'll never buy another thing from this clown again.
