Progress. We have developed a data base with thumbnails of every Tom image that we have in the archives under the guidance of Joel Powers. Stephen Blackwell and James Rose have been added to the research team in cataloging every image in our records.

We are now putting out an announcement to the press worldwide to see if we can track down more undocumented works by Tom and better reproduction copies of works within his library of known works. The project is still in its infancy in that through the production of the book for Taschen will come the expanded and digital library of the Tom library.

Any persons interested in volunteering their time and or expertise to move this project along are invited to be in touch with Durk Dehner at the Foundation.


The Foundation has also been contracted to have the largest book on TOM to be offered within the next year from this date. It will contain over 700 pages and with major enlargements, details and reference material. The physical size of the book with is very large and will focus on several decades of work from the mid 1960s to the culmination of his time in 1990.

We do not have a off the press date for this one but it shall break all boundaries to date with an amazing presentation. Release date in late 2005.
