Comments: (7)
This anthology of the work of Tom Of Finland comes highly recommended by me. I was thrilled to add this volume to my collection of his work. It is by no means absolutely comprehensive, but it offers a stunning array of illustrations of his work. My praise for this book cannot be high enough, it is not only thrilling, but enlightening, and educating in many ways.
If you're familiar at all with the work of Tom of Finland, You want this book in your collection, even if you are not familiar with the work of Tom of Finland, You want to add this book to your collection. A stunning display of gay erotic art, but also a vital part of the great gay tableau of history.
Tuoko Laaksonen (1920 - 1991) may have enjoyed worldwide fame as Tom of Finland during his lifetime, his fame due largely to an extensive following of those who praised his courage to paint and draw what he wanted to paint and draw rather than keeping his talent for figurative work in the dark corners of only certain bookstores. Now, thanks in large part to this very fine tome edited by Dian Hanson, the general public can appreciate the fact that not only did he appeal to a specific audience; he can now be seen as an exceptionally gifted draughtsman and artist.

Laaksonen/Tom of Finland restricted his output to figurative works that highlighted massively macho males in all manner of situations. While his work is erotically charged it always retains a brilliant sense of humor and parody: he celebrated his audience by saying it is not only OK to enjoy these works, it is also OK to see the humor in the distortion of fantasies. Many of these works in this exhaustive volume are well known, having been reproduced many times in literature and in galleries, but for the connoisseur there are unpublished works here, many of which show a more tender side to the artist. Hanson has the good idea of presenting these works of art in chronological order - another way of examining public acceptance of the artist's works - and the chapters covering sixty years of his output are arranged by decades, the Forties through the Eighties. Another fortunate aspect of this massive book is the decision to include essays and commentaries by such important writers as Edward Lucie-Smith, Armistead Maupin, John Waters, Todd Oldham and Camille Paglia.

This is a long awaited volume that places an underground artist in the same echelon with other contemporary figurative painters. It is a beautifully produced, edited, written and illustrated homage to an artist who is now recognized for his talent not only as an artist, but also as a spokesman for human rights!

this book - arrived packaged beyond belief - very nice and easy to deal with
If you are a fan of Tom of Finland, you already know what to expect. What you may not expect is the true mastery of this collection of his work. Published by Taschen, the volume itself is a work of art!! HUGE in size and a truly magnificent example of the bookbinder's art. The embossed dust jacket is formed from heavy style art paper and is a work of art in and of itself. Nearly every image is printed as a full page on heavy art stock paper with exceptional detail--many works are done as double page spreads! To further enhance the book and the art as well, a number of the works are done as double gatefolds equalling 4 complete pages!!!! There is even a beautiful white satin ribbon sewn into the spine of the book as a bookmark. The book comes in a superbly designed cardboard "briefcase" complete with carrying handle and the image from the cover of the book printed on the face as shown above. Tom's art has finally been elevated from being considered as merely pornographic to the true art that it definitely is. Be forewarned--it is not a book that can just be left on the "coffee table". Many people will not appreciate the content which is explicit---it depicts males in all forms of pleasure between one another and makes no apologies for its content. You owe it to yourself to own this volume!!! I have seen this book listed for $400 in some places and at approx. $150 here on Amazon, it's a steal. Every dollar you spend for it is returned ten fold when you see the quality and artistry that has been lovingly placed into this volume. ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the definitive collection for any Tom of Finland fan. Love the quality of the book itself - and seeing his work on such a large scale is truly amazing!
It's fun and interesting to enjoy the art of Touko Laaksonen. Impressive book, great work of the entire team by Taschen. It is the best book about his work was published. He could not stop looking at them, every one of his drawings are beautiful, alive Tom of Finland.
"Tom of Finland XXL" is the ultimate collection of the world's most iconic gay erotic artist. At nearly 15 pounds, it is a wondrous collection of his work. The book, due to size and weight, should be viewed on a table, bed, or couch due to it's enormous size and weight in order to prevent damage to the binding. Unlike the original printing of "Tom of Finland The Art of Pleasure" (oddly light in weight and the edges of the cheap paper have browned over the last few years), the paper quality and binding of Tom of Finland XXL is top quality. "Tom of Finland XXL" will make a significant contribution to any lover of Tom's work. It is beautiful and quite a bargain at Amazon.com.
