'every man has two heads. that's better than one' glenn o'brien
published by m/m (paris), the alphadicks brings together an original series of drawings by mathias augustyniak in a numbered edition of 1000 copies. the title doesn’t lie: the black and white illustrations portray twenty-six elegant young men with giant phalli protruding from their backs, breaking out of their hats or placed delicately around their shoulders like animals after the hunt. a cheeky text in rhyme written by glenn o’brien, and entitled 'dickheads', introduces the drawings. the witty text tells the story behind the images — about men and their 'two heads'. The drawings are freely inspired by willy vanderperre’s photographs made for arena homme+ in 2008, when the magazine was under the creative direction of m/m (paris). a series of ornamented numbers, sketched especially for the book, introduces the illustrations.
this is the first volume of m/m (paris) collection of books.
