Tom of Finland – A New Anthology

Tom of Finland – Life and Work of a Gay Hero

The list of artists who had major influence on the Gay movement is rather short,
since the movement itself is just a few decades old.
But without a doubt Tom of Finland has to be included,
the man whose amazing drawings tell us everything about love,
lust and life of those hunks who have a good heart and live a simple life.

Tom of Finland – Life and Work of a Gay Hero
 is a detailed anthology

which is dedicated to his body of work
from its early beginnings to the last years.

 With many drawings, a lot of photos and an extensive biography
it gives you a portrait of this unique artist,
which is as many-sided and life-embracing as the artist himself.
