An exceptional edition of Tom's drawings, beautifully reproduced.

When Touko Laaksonen, known as Tom of Finland, began drawing thickly muscled and amazingly endowed men in the 1950s, his artwork was illegal in many places. Anti-gay censorship laws meant he and his collectors could be (and sometimes were) imprisoned for owning same-sex erotica.

But over the course of his 60-plus year artistic career, Tom of Finland changed the way the world views gay masculinity and sexuality and inspired generations of queer artists.
