5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent book from Taschen, 7 April 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tom of Finland: Volume 1: Comic Collection 1 (Hardcover)
Once again Taschen have excelled themselves with this fantastic volume featuring the comics of Tom of Finland. The hardback cover includes gold lettering and two wonderful Tom of Finland illustrations on the front and back covers. But here's the amazing part - the cover jacket is reversible and so if you don't want anyone knowing the identity of the book on your shelf, just reverse the cover and it will show Smiths Wealth of Nations Volume 1. And what a wealth of Tom's artwork can be found inside the book. Each page features a plate taken from Tom's comics and beautifully reproduced on heavy stock gloss paper with the black and white artwork coloured with sepia. The book includes an introduction to Touko Laaksonen, otherwise known as Tom of Finland, and reproduces an unpublished 1946 comic beautifully coloured along with Kake 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, Beach Boys 1 and 2 and Jack 1 to 3.
Anyone who knows the artwork of Tom of Finland will want to include this first volume in their collection. Alternatively, it is a great first look at the homo-erotic art of Tom which has given untold people joy over the decades.
A warning - if you are offended by gay artwork then maybe this book is not for you. Alternatively, it would make a great gift for a gay friend and it is at a very acceptable price on Amazon
