"Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor"

I'M EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor by Jim French has finally been released! It is a collection of never before seen Polaroids by Mr. French to be used as reference for his illustrations.

While his resulting drawings were beautiful, it's no wonder he switched to photography later in his career. The book contains 116 color and black and white photos. As an artist that has recently begun to explore the male nude, it is an inspiration and guide. It's amazing to see the time he put into making each setup and the all the poses, props, and settings he explored. I'll definitely be taking the time to examine each image.
Additionally, I was lucky enough to assist in the production of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor. Freelancing at Antinous Press, I saw each image in person. It was truly blessing to have the opportunity.

If you'd like to get your hands on a copy, please visit Antinous Press's site. Just some private intel, between you and me. They have some special editions soon to be released. ;)
