Dreamer. Drawings by Mel Odom

Harmondsworth, Middlesex, UK: Penguin, 1984. 1st Edition. Quarto, publisher's stiff illustrated paper wraps.

"In Mel Odom's world the perverse has become at last a candid pleasure...a vision of utopia." Monograph on queer American artist Mel Odom, with an introduction by novelist Edmund White. Odom came to fame in the 1970s and 80s for his ethereal and erotic illustrations for magazines such as Blueboy, Viva, Playboy, Rolling Stone, and Omni, along with book covers for numerous novels, including White’s Nocturnes for the King of Naples (1978). While he retired from professional illustration in 1996 to create a fashion doll for adults named Gene Marshall, his iconic oeuvre of Art Deco-inspired drawings remains venerated, and he recently was given a retrospective at Daniel Cooney gallery in 2019. Illustrated with color plates. Light soiling and edgewear. Near fine. Item #8377
