Boys of the Summer

Published July 23, 2014

As an artist, Jack Pierson has never limited himself, working in collage, photography, and sculpture, among other media. His new book, Tomorrow’s Man, Lynn Valley 9 (Bywater Bros.), brings it all together in a scrapbook-style treatise on masculinity, culled from Pierson’s prodigious archive. Featuring his portraiture, tears from vintage muscle magazines, various ephemera, and contributions from the likes of Jeff Elrod, Channing Tatum, and a short story from Veralyn Behenna, Pierson takes a novel approach to the conventions of the photo book, disregarding page breaks and centerfolds and using collage to create an irreverent, free-flowing visual experience.
