This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: The title of Jack Pierson's most recent print exploration comes from an infamous bodybuilding magazine from the 1950s and 60s. Appropriating both the title and its retro bodybuilding aesthetic, Pierson takes viewers on a dizzying visual journey encompassing a wide spectrum of cultural references. Combining archival material with contributions from artists, illustrators and one writer, Tomorrow's Man 2 is a psychedelic meditation on masculinity. Highlights include sci-fi-imbued illustrations from Mel Odom, surreal assemblages from Tibi Tibi Neuspiel and geometric abstractions from Richard Tinkler. Also included are works from Dennis Balk, David Carrino, Alejandro Cesarco, David Colman, Pat de Groot, Jeff Elrod, Alex Jovanovich, Elizabeth Kley, Paulo Montiero, Dan McCarthy, OM from India and Evan Whale. Pierson does away with the conventions of the photobook genre, arranging this scrapbook with his signature irreverence and curatorial quirk.
