"Brings us the latest and most current survey of the male nude form, as seen through the eyes of today's most important and influential artists, who recognize the inherent physical and emotional beauty of the subject. This collection showcases such prominent photographers and illustrators as David Hockney, Sam Taylor-Wood, Clive Barker, Mark Beard, Tom Bianchi, Reed Massengill, Nan Goldin, and Duane Michals, among many others, presenting images ranging from the erotic to fantastic, romantic, dangerous, and funny. Features the work of more than 120 established and emerging visual artists, making this collection nothing less than the premiere catalog of the genre. The male form has made strides to reclaim its place in modern society, alongside its female counterpart, as a thing of beauty, admiration, and desire. Yet even as we begin a new century, controversy, fear, and discomfort keep it from realizing its full potential as a popularly accepted object d'art" (Publisher's blurb). The collection is best appreciated and understood as an extension of "Male Nude Now", the third and final volume in the trilogy that began with "Naked Men" and "Naked Men Too", all three edited by David Leddick. An absolute "must-have" title for erotic art photography collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on his Contribution by Reed Massengill. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Edition/First Printing available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 250 plates. Some of the world's greatest artist/photographers of the male nude. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER DAVID LEDDICK AND REED MASSENGILL TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0789317567.
