Tom of Finland
Retrospective


1st printing of one of the finest collections of the great Tom of Finland, published in 1988 by the Tom of Finland Foundation, Los Angeles, and The Gay Men’s Press (GMP), London.
Preface by Tom of Finland with appreciation by Dennis Forbes and Fred Bisonnes. This book covers Tom of Finland’s work from 1946 to 1987, depicting page by page throughout his iconic and impeccable graphite drawings of macho leathermen, bikers, cowboys, cops, lumberjacks, hardhats, soldiers and sailors, all in all their exaggerated erotic glory.

Touko Valio Laaksonen (8 May 1920 – 7 November 1991), best known by his pseudonym Tom of Finland, was a Finnish artist known for his stylized highly masculine homoerotic fetish art, and his influence on late twentieth century gay culture. He has been called the “most influential creator of gay pornographic images” by cultural historian Joseph W. Slade. Over the course of four decades, he produced some 3500 illustrations.

PIN-UP 14
Spring Summer 2013


PIN–UP is a magazine that captures an architectural spirit, rather than focusing on technical details of design, by featuring interviews with architects, designers, and artists, and presenting work as an informal work in progress – a fun assembly of ideas, stories and conversations, all paired with cutting-edge photography and artwork. Both raw and glossy, the magazine is a nimble mix of genres and themes, finding inspiration in the high and the low by casting a refreshingly playful eye on rare architectural gems, amazing interiors, smart design, and that fascinating area where those areas connect with contemporary art. In short, PIN–UP is pure architectural entertainment!

Issue 14 features:
Paulo Mendes Da Rocha, ROLU, Delfina Delettrez, Hans Kollhoff, PLUS a 60-page BRAZIL SPECIAL including a portfolio by Wolfgang Tillmans on the city São Paulo; a cinematic portrait of Rio by the artist Sarah Morris; a Hans Ulrich Obrist-led tour of Lina Bo Bardi’s luminous domestic masterpiece and former residence, the Casa de Vidro; and an insightful new take on Brasilia’s genesis and legacy by Richard Williams with photographs by Marcelo Krasilcic. As well as conversations with established and up-and-coming architects, artists and designers from all over Brazil, including an introduction to ten of the most exciting contemporary Brazilian architects.
Also:
An ethereal tour of Valerio Olgiati’s unbuilt wonders, a visit to legendary gay artist Tom of Finland’s Los Angeles sanctuary, a look inside Michael Capo’s auction house treasure palace, and a trip to Mozambique to revisit the life and work of the unbelievably prolific Portuguese architect Pancho Guedes. Also in the issue, Kate McCollough trawls Second Life cataloging traditional stair typologies and PIN–UP’s recommendations for the contemporary corporate environment. Plus a 15-page PIN–UP Board showcase including the PIN–UP Book Club, Norman Foster, Jerszy Seymour, Ken Price, Horrace Gifford, OMA for Knoll, FAUX/real, Adeline André, and so much more.
