Subject of the groundbreaking exhibition The Pleasure of Play at Artists Space in New York last summer, Tom of Finland has emerged from the obscurity of gay erotica to take his place in the pantheon of iconic gay artists. This sumptuous book offers an immersive journey into the private interiors of the house in which he spent the last ten years of his life, in counterpoint to rarely seen sketches and drawings.
