BOOKS

The Big Penis Book 3D
Author: Dian Hanson
TASCHEN
Hardcover with 3D glasses, 28 x 28 cm (11 x 11 in.), 220 pages
$ 39.99

This 220-page, 28 by 28 cm special edition includes 96 images from the original book, plus 8 new bonus photos, transformed into eye-popping 3-D by Jon Schnitzer and The Brain Factory.
Unlike other 3D pictures you may have seen, the photos in The Big Penis Book 3D do not look distorted when viewed without the glasses. The Brain Factory’s technique is so subtle it’s hard to even detect the red/blue tint in many of the black and white photos, but when you put on your glasses the parts of interest leap from the page, not in flat layers as in old-style 3D, but as thick, fully rounded, touchable contours.

Johnny is an art student in Nassau whose technique is perfect, but he’s creatively blocked. His teacher sends him off to the rural island of Eleuthera where he meets Romeo, a hot musician. They begin a clumsy dance of attraction and romance. Romeo has a fiancé and is identified as straight, but he’s been known to play with the boys on the side secretly. An intense drama of love, family and secrets.
