The Male Nude Underground 1880-1970 coffee table book (2021)
A coffee table book of vintage photos from the collection of photographer Michael Stokes with an emphasis on the male nude and erotica. Clothbound, 160 pages, 12.5"X10," this is a follow up to the now sold-out book, My Naked Soldier except the subjects are both military and non-military and span a time period from 1880-1970. With over 260 vintage photos, the author takes you through 90 years of professional and amateur photography as it relates to male nude figure study. Photos range from classic poses all the way to the hardcore pornography that later became prevalent in the 1960s-70s. This publication contains many unseen and unpublished private images all taken from original photos and negatives.
