Staff Gift Recommendations: An Obscene Diary

An Obscene Diary: The Visual World Of Sam Steward

by Justin Spring and Sam Steward

This photo book supplements Spring's 2010 biography of Steward, a fascinating academic and tattoo artist who was practically a professional homosexual! Carefully cataloging his sexual conquests on index cards (his 'stud file'), Steward was essential to Alfred Kinsey in his sex research. He took photos too, dirty enough to make Tom of Finland blush!
