DolltopiaDolltopia
Abby Denson
$15.00
From the moment Kitty, a ballerina doll, is assembled in the Doll Factory, she questions her existence. She ends up in a suburban home where a little girl plays domestic games with her and Soccer Scotty, a male doll happy with the status quo. The restless Kitty escapes, along the way meeting Army Jim, a military action figure. He's heading for Dolltopia, where dolls have created their own society, separate from humans. She joins him on the journey and the biggest adventure of their lives! They give themselves makeovers, meet a helpful black cat and other free-thinking dolls, lead a raid on the Doll Factory, and Kitty undergoes plastic surgery by Dolltopia's mysterious Doctor. Just as she's getting settled in, Soccer Scotty tracks her down. Things get even worse when a human discovers Dolltopia! Acclaimed graphic novelist Abby Denson brings her trademark manga-and punk-inflected style to this imaginative graphic novel.

Maurice Vellekoops Pin-upsMaurice Vellekoop's Pin-ups
Maurice Vellekoop
$22.00
Mixing the coy sensuality of great girlie artists like Vargas and Gil Elvgren with the larger-than-life homoerotics of Tom of Finland and Harry Bush, acclaimed artist Maurice Vellekoop presents a clever gallery of gay fantasy figures. Vellekoop's colorful creations prod the viewer with a mischievous smile or a haughty leer, each as aroused as they are arousing. These gay icons include everything from a cigar-chomping army sergeant to a pimple-bottomed nerd. Part of the book's pleasure is in identifying the sources of Vellekoop's satirical riffing. Observant readers can discover references to Italian gladiator movie posters, children's fairy tales, Frazetta-style fantasy art, and Bruce Weber underwear campaigns. Vellekoop also does a queer makeover of such treasured figures as Gainsborough's "Blue Boy" and Michelangelo's "David." These unique pin-ups offer a delightfully sexy celebration of male beauty in the artist's trademark sizzling Technicolor tones.

Speeding: The Old Reliable Photos of David HurlesSpeeding: The Old Reliable Photos of David Hurles
by David Hurles (Photographer), Rex (Introduction)

$36.95 (Hardcover) | $26.95 (Trade Paper)

For over 40 years, David Hurles documented the hidden world of rough trade and rent boys posing, masturbating, wrestling, or boxing. His models ranged from drifters and grifters to hustlers and ex-cons — men who came to Los Angeles and Hurles’s studio, to make it big but mostly landed in Hollywood’s gutter. His photographs were ubiquitous fixtures in gay publications throughout the seventies and eighties and continue to enjoy a strong following today. More Weegee than Weber, these images vibrate with youthful male power and edgy sexuality. Chosen from Hurles's vast archive by noted homoerotic artist Rex, they comprise an amazing photographic history of a sexuality that society has rarely acknowledged.

Original Sin
Joe Coleman
$29.95
Artist Joe Coleman’s Original Sin contains visually stimulating and radically graphic nightmarish images. Filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, historian Harold Schechter and art critic/poet John Yau contribute essays to this extremely dark “coffin table” book. Joe’s work is often compared to illuminated manuscripts because of the great detail contained within each piece. His acrylic paintings depict acts of violence, some of which even include gory details of various body parts. Both sexual and revolting, the book contains material that may not be suitable for everyone.
