This is a beautiful and varied collection of artwork that glorifies, eroticizes, and celebrates the male body. It contains art (paintings, sculptures, etc.) from as early as the most ancient civilizations to as late as the present day, and from countries as far apart on the map as China and America. Even the subject matter is diverse, as the art covers everything from Greek mythology, to modern-day S&M, to, of course, the arrow-ridden body of St. Sebastian that no collection of homoerotic art could ever be complete without. My only complaint about this book is that the art is not categorized by year, country, or both. Not only would that make it easier to find specific artwork, but it would also be interesting to compare and contrast different cultures or see how the art has evolved. Still, if you're interested in the historical and artistic depiction of homosexuality and the male body, or if you just enjoy admiring beautiful artwork (and you don't mind the small size of the pictures), then this book is well worth the price.
