An excellent addition to the Tom of Finland library,
This review is from: Tom of Finland XXL (Hardcover)
With the price of this book being so very costly, I spent many days and nights debating whether to shell out and buy this book. Its cost constantly fluctuates, even the amazon price, but it is well worth making the decision to purchase.
As the owner of The Complete Kake Comics and The Complete Tom Of Finland Comics, as well as the hardback edition of Tom Of Finland, I finally made up my mind to purchase this new collection of illustrations from one of the most famous portrayers of homo-erotic artwork. The book is lavishly illustrated with a historical presentation of Tom's artwork and produced in an order which can only be appreciated by connoisseurs of this type of artwork. While some may find the content of the art offensive, to the true art critic it is sheer brilliance of an artist using a multitude of mediums and creating masterpieces which will be admired for many generations to come.
The thing which I found so wonderful was the fact that the book arrived in its very own cardboard carry case with a plastic handle. Even more beautiful was the cover of the book - a true delight - with one of Tom's famous iconic images embossed. A surprise and a delight.
If you are respectful of homo-erotic art and not offended by adult content, then I strongly recommend this book on your 'wish' list. You won't be disappointed.
