Digging for Tom's Artwork Worldwide

work on
The Complete Tom of Finland

Help us track down Tom's early works!

The Tom of Finland Foundation and Taschen are working together on The Complete Tom of Finland, a massive book (11 1/2 x 17 1/4 Inches) that we hope to be... well... complete!

But much of Tom's work -- especially his early work -- has been lost. Tom would often give away artwork to promote bike clubs and events. Early sales of his artwork were rarely photographed, or were photographed poorly. (Tom never claimed to be much of a photographer!)

If you have any original art by this fine artist, even if it's just something you think might be a Tom of Finland, please contact us!

Learn more about how you can help, plus see a video about the Foundation House here.

L. A. Willette

He was a rebel in every sense of the word, and paid the price for it, but in doing so has left behind a body of work that will not go unnoticed.
