urlencode() uses quote_plus() when it creates a URL, which is why you are 
getting the plus signs. Unfortunately I don't have Python at work, so I 
can't try this, but maybe do:

quote(urlencode({'page': i, 'order': 'desc', 'style': 'flex power'}))

and see if that works? I'm not sure if quote() will convert the %20 into +, 
though, but it may.
