This is a weekly recap post from the Hunk Guide, our collection of great posts (and sexy men) from some of our favorite blogs. Check out the Hunk Guide to see them all, or suggest a link for us to include!
Iconic artist Tom of Finland, real name Touko Laaksonen, has been getting a lot of attention this week when it was announced that Finland will issue Tom of Finland postage stamps. Well, if stamp collecting isn't your thing - perhaps you're more of a cross-stitch fan?
Crafters, a sexy new throw pillow is in your future -- suitable for a throw pillow on that spit-fire aunt's couch, or to spruce up your favorite dungeon! Brisbane, Australia design firm Pearler has worked with the Tom of Finland Foundation to create these fully-licensed DIY cross-stitch kits.
Pearler is shopping around for wholesalers, so US crafters may currently have to endure a long flight if they want to get their hands on a kit. They are currently available for sale at The Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art, The National Gallery of Victoria, and Tasmania's Museum of Old and New Art.
...but the real question is, can you cross-stitch these images onto leather? I look forward to seeing your handywork, hunk-lovers!
Photographer Pat Lee is to be thanked for many excellent photos of insanely fit fellows. And today's Hunk of the Day is no exception.
