Swiss Jim

~ 1918 - 1964

Pseudonym for a Swiss/French Artist, referred to as 'Swiss Jim' (so this artist might not be confused with the other 'German' Jim)
He also used the pseudonym Gil. There is nearly nothing known for this artist, a collector knew he was originally from Geneva, he worked as a technical draftsman for a design company and died during a holiday trip in 1964.  Jim worked for Irving Klaw's Nutrix publications from 1952 through 1963/1964.

His drawings are in many SM books (mostly in the Irwing Klaw range), like the Magazine 'Subjugating a Male Bondage Model' and the book Baroness of Torture Museum. One of his best-known creations was 'Baroness Steel', a feature that was also collected in Bizarre Comix issue 5 in 1976.

Books illustrated that are featured in gallery below:

  • Claudine(1950)
  • l'éducation des filles vicieuses (1950)
  • Baroness Steel (1957)
  • Perilous Bondage (1959)
  • Juno's Girls (1960)

  • Chained Captives (1960)
  • Bondage Sleuth's (1960)
  • Sold into Slavery (1962)
  • Letters on Discipline (unknown date)

There is an album titled Baroness Steel (sketch), these sketchworks were referred to as being from Jim. There were no other references, it could be that these were his set up sketches or ideas, but it could also be drawn by someone else. Perhaps someone who wanted to inspire for the story, or someone who sketched after the album Baroness Steel.
