See what ToFF has in its library!

 

LT-1You can search with the box on the right side of the screen and the drop-down menu by title, author, subject, etc., or just press enter.

This is a work in progress! We currently have 500 books in LibraryThing and more titles are being added weekly. The list is in order of entry, so the first books on the list are the last ones loaded.

Because the books we have are rather rare, not many other members have them, so there aren’t many reviews or comments. If you join LibraryThing, you can put your own books in (up to 200 for free) and write reviews, etc.

So, go take a look and have some “literary” fun!

ToFF Library receives gift of “The Art of Man”

 

Volume 7 / Winter 2011

Tom of Finland Foundation’s library has received  the latest issue of the quartlery, The Art of Man. 

“It is a fine arts journal that seeks to bring balance to a genre of art that overwhelmingly favors the female figure. Every edition includes an historical reference, an article on the fine art of the male figure, a directory of over 150 artists, and in-depth interviews with 5 artists that are courageous enough to focus on the male figure as a significant portion of their portfolio.”

ToFF is appreciative of this gift and the work of Firehouse Publishing.

 

You may find all seven issues of The Art of Man here.
