Description: The art of Touko Laaksonen (1920-1991), famous throughout the world as Tom of Finland, has had an incredibly defining impact upon the culture at large -- an impact that arguably exceeds that of any other artist working in the latter half of the 20th century. It is perhaps even more remarkable that Tom of Finland was not a traditional fine artist -- his work was most commonly regarded as gay pornography and rightly so. Yet it is work that had a tremendous impact upon the emerging gay culture worldwide -- work whose erotic and emotional power remains unabated to this date. In this groundbreaking study, Micha Ramakers, employing a combination of methods from the art sciences and culture studies, offers fascinating insights into the work.

Lavishly illustrated with more than 80 black-and-white drawings and photographs, this isn't, however, a dry theoretical treatise -- rather, it is a lively and enlightening work about the functions and functioning of gay porn. For his millions of fans throughout the world, this study of Tom of Finland brings uncommon insight into his most uncommon work.
