Who's a Pretty Boy Then? by James Gardiner
Who's a Pretty Boy Then? One Hundred and Fifty Years of Gay Life in Pictures
More than 600 pictures---portraits, pornography, postcards, cuttings, and snapshots from private albums--go to make up one man's personal and highly idiosyncratic view of gay history since the invention of the camera. Gay people, their friends, lovers, idols and enemies in all their glory, divas, bodybuilders and drag queens, heroes and villains, from Marie Lloyd to Madonna, Sandow to Schwarzenegger, Boulton to Savage, Labouchere to Mary Whitehouse.
And alongside the famous and infamous, are the images of the 'ordinary' gay men taken at moments that only friends and lovers would bother to record. Compiled by the historian James Gardiner and published by Serpent's Tail.
Very Good condition. Slight wear at all corners of the hardback cover. Interior end papers and pages are in pristine condition. No markings or writing on the interior or exterior.
