WOW! Mark Henderson outdid himself with this one! American Eros has more than 200+ pages showcasing the erotic beauty of the muscular male! (And the book feels like it weighs a ton with all of the additional pages.)

One of the things I value about Mark's work is his commitment to bringing such high production values and visual interest to his erotic image-making. For me, the angles, compositions, props, and vivid color palettes that he uses simply amplifies the sexual charisma of his models. And despite the vast number of photographs in this book, he has delivered again. Each image is meticulously crafted.

As with his other books, I love the fact that Mark has continued to feature so many different types of men in American Eros: older and younger men, shaved and unshaved, a variety of races and ethnicities, porn stars and new discoveries, etc.

So if you are looking for a book of coy, understated, sedate male nudes, this book is not for you.

But, if you want a book that is bursting with literally with hundreds pages of chiseled, hard-bodied male nudes gloriously showcased to set your fantasies afire, then this book was made just for you (and me)!

Get it. American Eros is sumptuous! You will not be disappointed.

The latest book from talented photographer Mark Henderson (his previous books include Luminosity, Suburban Pleasures Natural Beauty and Household Idols) is the largest size-wise volume of his to date. Measuring 10 inches X 14 inches and at 288 pages this is an expensive mammoth book full of color saturated pages of (as the RR suggests) `men at home, on the job, by the pool and more - intimate and very private, impossibly cut and toned men in all their glory, comfortable with their nude bodies no matter where they are: indoors or out, in bed or by the pool, ready for a game or simply naked and ready for anything. Every glistening stretch of skin communicates the power and freedom of American life at its devil-may-care best!'

For many viewers this will not be a zenith for this artist. Unlike his other monographs of male nudes in this series his models seem posed, at times unnaturally so. The men are from many ethnic groups, posed with artsy objects - men in tuxes, suits, lots of pool shots, men nude and partially clothed but almost always aroused. There are pages of just water surface that serve to tie the theme together. These are muscle bound men, tattooed, shaved, and somehow not natural: beautiful bodies but somehow seemingly artificial. But for those who prefer frank sexuality to subtle eroticism, this book will satisfy. Grady Harp, June 13

......i'm a man of a certain age...happy , and, always, still remembering, the 'DAY'....i feel it is very important to keep as much of the gay world, all the fun of the 'party', along with the 'now' of today, together.......this need for continuity is so strong,............ life and love and beauty are marvelous today.........and the memories ,the physicality, the warmth,, the captured artwork of the gay arc , that which preceeded it,is still chic, sexy, influential and...well, devastating....

...that is why ,the pinnacle of all male photography, Jim French, wrote the intro....JIM FRENCH ! COLT!,all my younger dreams,visualized............... and, yes, my IDOLS, .......it blows my mind....

...... hey,with that kind of endorsement, it is very critical for the artist to have a broad breath of understanding, as they fill their canvas..........we, and the artist, are always at this together.......we have our dreams and desires, the artist ,hopefully, frames them for us........his/ her way.........

.......so, that said...the current masters of the craft of the photography of the beautiful male, are at their best, when they reinvent what has gone before, give it its due, respect, and awe...........while still, following their eye, their senses as an artist..make it fresh..............................make it now.

Mark Henderson's new book AMERICAN EROS, shows us, just how deft, clever, and talented ,he is.............i know, it's odd to praise an artist...when most of the attention is usually on the pages...on the men on the pages...on the shockingly beautiful men on the pages.....on the most thrilling men, i could imagine..on their flesh....their,..sorry, i'm getting overwhelmed.........

I ordered this book based on a review of it I read in a local paper. The book exceeded my expectations. The photography is gorgeous. It is very artistically done and the models are all amazingly good looking. The book is well worth its hefty price tag, as there are over 150 photos. The models are diverse in looks, age, ethnicity, etc. so there truly is something for everyone. I highly recommend it. Be aware that the photos range from nude with erections, nude without erections, to moderately clothed. Again, something for everyone! And all very artistically done!

For all Jim French Colt classic fans Mark Henderson takes the art of male nude photography to the next level. I own all of Mark Henderson's coffee table books and American Eros definitely does not disappoint. Infact, It exceeds his already amazing previous publications. An extremely big book, this latest's collector's item almost doubles in pages than his previous works, and it is heavy! Henderson digitally color enhanced many of its photos adding creativity and richness to his images. Also, many/most of the models are recognizable in both commercial work and popular adult modeling...no enhancement needed here in all their erotic masculine beauty and hard magnificence. This 'must-own' book will leave you breathless.
