Celebrating 50 Years of Publishing with QX Magazine

QX Magazine presents six articles paying homage to Tom of Finlandís life, his art and his legacy.

They publish some of his rarer and previously unpublished artworks and contemporise the influence of Tom of Finland through a modern photographic interpretation of some of his more famous imagery, as shot by noted scene photographer Magnus Hastings. Enjoy!

The Foundation & Taschen Continue Hunt for More Tom Artwork

Dianne Hanson of Taschen interviews the Foundation's president and cofounder Durk Dehner. Included in the video is a look at Tom's room at the Foundation House and a look at the last image Tom worked on before his passing.

The search for "lost" Tom of Finland artwork continues. 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. We will arrange to have your art professionally reproduced so it can be a part of this landmark project.

This is your chance to be part of this stunning tribute to everyone's favorite dirty drawer, and to help us prove once and for all that fine art and great masturbation material can, and should be, one and the same.
