Naturally Forming Glory Hole

This book was made for the first "Paris Ass Book Fair" in 2017. It explores the notion of cottaging (sexual encounters in public toilets) and the changing environment in which it sat in the 60-70's. 

 

As time flows you follow the emerging of a naturally forming glory hole within the walls of the stall on the toilet coupled with the journey of a gay man and his sexual encounters. This piece features Polari, a known language developed over generations of people evading detection.
