“To love hair is human, to fur-give is divine.”
Continuing the bestselling line of gorgeously printed illustrated men’s pictorial books from leading German publisher Bruno GmÃ¼nder, FUR: the love of hair further explores the manscape of the masculine hirsute male using dozens of iconic and original contemporary images, all exploring the endless delights of men’s hair.
The photographs and illustrations in FUR portray the gorgeousness of male body hair by the leading names in the Bear art community, including many independent and lesser-known artists who have produced outstanding work.
The richly erotic and diverse artistic expression on display in FUR the love of hair represents a true global collaboration, with contributing artists from Japan, New Zealand, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Argentina, Peru, Mexico, Canada, and the United States.
Commentary, information, insight, and personal essays in both English and German, interspersed among the images, examine and celebrate various aspects of gay/bi/queer male fur as they are displayed on various parts, and the whole, of the body.
FUR the love of hair is a visually captivating, innovative, and provocative coffee-table book that explores, reveals, and celebrates the worldwide cult of the hairy masculine man.
