(working title)
The Ultimate Tom of Finland Collection

Do you know of any "obscure" works by Tom of Finland? A substantial portion of Tom's early artwork was given away for motorcycle club beer busts, sold to fans, and subsequentially "lost" to the Foundation's archives. If you or a friend are aware of anything created by Tom that you even think we might not have, please get in touch with Foundation Director, Durk Dehner.

This book will involve one of the most massive projects the Foundation has ever tackled: an electronic database of every Tom image we have in our Archives. Under the guidance of Joel P., our research team of Stephen B. and James R. are working on this immense task. In collaboration with Taschen publishing, this library will be a key element for the definitive book of Tom's works.

Consider volunteering your time and expertise by becoming part of this squad. Everyone is welcome!

To help out with this project, contact Durk Dehner
