Packed with dozens of original drawings, sketches, and black and white illustrations, the Gengoroh Tagame Sketchbook from MASSIVE GOODS demonstrates why Tagame-san is the master of gay erotic art. These pencil and ink sketches– depicting rope-bound BDSM scenarios, hot homoerotic desire, and fantasies that range from the historical to the sci-fi– provide a glimpse into Tagame’s process and underscore the artist’s unparalleled draftsmanship.

Beautifully produced with a striking cover design by Chip Kidd, this collection brings together the sketches behind a variety of beloved images spanning Tagame’s decades-long career, recognizable from book covers, gay magazines, gallery walls, manga, and T-shirts– as well as works that have never been printed in any publication. Dive deep into the depths of Tagame’s artwork and find out why he has been celebrated and recognized around the world.
