Victo is the first female to interpret the ancient text, with her body of work including illustrating the book jacket for famous author Neil Gamain

She spoke with Femail about her work on Kama Sutra, revealing, "Examining the pieces now in hindsight, I believe I did subconsciously worked from a female-centric perspective.

"For example, many of the scenes are composed in a way that situates the viewers in the women's point of view, while the writing often reflects the patriarchal attitude of its time.

"Kama Sutra in its essence is a guidebook of achieving good Karma - love, sensual pleasure - which is one of the four purusarthas or goals in life.

"Sex is a big part in the book, but there's so much more to it than just intercourse positions, contrary to its portrayal in popular cultures.

"So instead of creating illustrations which are overtly sexual, I tried to walk the fine line of creating something that's tantalizing, yet thoughtful and elegant at the same time.”

Take a look at some of her work in the new edition, shared to Instagram.
