No other artist has done so much to define gay masculinity in the public mind as Touko Laaksonen, aka Tom of Finland. The rough and manly men in his “dirty drawings” have become archetypes for more than one generation of gay men, influencing the work of artists as diverse as Robert Mapplethorpe, Bruce Weber, Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Freddie Mercury. This book traces Tom’s life and work from his childhood and student days in Finland, through his successful career in advertising and his rise to cult status in the international gay community and beyond. Lushly illustrated with his drawings, and including seldom-seen photographs, this volume brings to life Tom of Finland—the man, the artist, the icon.
