Today is Tuesday! You know what that means? Yes, today is that special day in the week when we can treat our eyes to some delicious eye candy. It’s Top Off Tuesday! Top Off Tuesday is a feature hosted by Felicia from The Geeky Book Blogger's Book Blog, Amanda from On a Book Bender, and Christi from Smitten with Reading.
The cover I have for you is the cover for Wet Men by François Rousseau. Wet Men is my kind of coffee table book… I could sit and admire stare at it the whole day.
Francois Rousseau, photographer of Locker Room Nudes and the famed Dieux du Stade calendar, presents a unique and candid collection of nude and seminude photos of more than fifty men in, on, and around water. Wet Men is a celebration of the beauty of the male form, as well as the fulfillment of the fantasies surrounding the swimmers, lifeguards, athletes, and bathers around us.Each photo in this beautifully produced book shows a man or men soaked to their bathing suits-or less-emerging from an afternoon’s dip in the ocean, playing on the beach, laying on sailboat decks, or taking a midsummer’s soak in a pool.Photographed on the beaches in the South of France, the public pools of Paris, the showers and spas of gyms, and the sparkling waters of Tahiti, these men are not professional models. Rather, they-and their sculpted, healthy, and undeniably sexy bodies-are eroticized, in the water, on the sand, under the sun, for their realness, their masculinity, and their accessibility.
