Format: Hardcover
The extraordinarily beautiful and lavishly produced calendars and videodiscs that have come out year by year of photography, of supremely fine calibre, of the rugby players who are members of the team, Dieux du Stade, Paris, and of their "guests", i.e. other rugby players from teams all over the world, have become iconographic monuments of the nude and nearly-nude male body. However, this book, drawing upon the wealth of photos and stills from the videos, perhaps inlucding yet other images as well of the same and perhaps other men, surpasses even previous products.

This book is gorgeous; it is overwhelming; it is an exalted tribute to the male body and to the god-like figure of the professional athlete. There is something almost supernatural at times in the supernal beauty and naturalness, as Rousseau captures them for immortality, of these varied and magnificent men that makes one tremble, not just with sexual arousal (but that, too, and how!), but with wonder at the sheer grace, strength, and allure of the male human form and of the photographer's art.

Judging from the copyrights, which are given up to 2007, well in the future at the time of the book's publication, one presumes that there are images and probably players, too, not yet included in the videodiscss and calendars that have come out to date.

This is a lavish book and more than well worth its price, a fine monographic tribute to the photographer, Francois Rousseau, as well as to such men who, astoundingly, have been permitting themselves to be photographed so intimately. There is little written text, so whether the buyer is English- or French-speaking (or of any other language), the book will be a worthwhile purchase for truly anyone, anywhere in the world. Women and gay men will thrill at these photos, but so will lovers more generally of the nude in art of Rousseau's level as he has attained it with the camera!

A perfect gift for anyone who appreciates the male form. This was a gift from my fiance and it was VERY well received! Beautiful men photographed beautifully, every picture is a treat for the eyes - mouthwatering. Whilst there are a few pictures of fully naked men (or demi-gods), the majority leave just a little for the imagination. This book can be appreciated equally as a book of fine photographic art, or as a 'bedroom' companion - whatever you would want from a book of photographs of male nudes, it delivers - BIG TIME. Even if this book had not been a gift, I would have happily shelled out the cash and bought it for myself - and have been very glad I did!

An excellent, well laid out and a high quality photo-book. Very pleased I bought it. I wish I had jumpe in earlier with the other similar books in the series as I see that most have been priced so far out of the ballpark as to be unsellable to all but the insanely desperate Collectors (and if I had unlimited funds I would likely place myself in that category, but alas, not to be).

Who would have thought some of the roughest and hardest men in sport could look so sexy and tame....... Madonna is a huge fan and provides the forward "shocking" i believe she wrote in silver metaliic pen, so if its good enough for the Queen of Erotica then its good enough for me, stunning!
