Celebrating BUTT magazine's fifth anniversary, this book is a selection of the most fantastic and the most ridiculous interviews and photos that have appeared in BUTT so far. This anthology also finally makes a lot of material from the now rare, earlier issues of BUTT available again. For your (in)convenience, the timeline in the book runs backwards, from the here and now all the way back to the summer of 2001, when the first issue of BUTT landed with a bang.
Like the magazine itself, this book offers an often amazingly realistic view on today's homosexual man, including conversations with Michael Stipe, Gus van Sant, Rufus Wainwright, Marc Jacobs, as well as contributions from Wolfgang Tillmans, Terry Richardson, Hedi Slimane, Asianpunkboy, and Helmut Lang, just to name a few. 'BUTT has single-handedly pioneered the notion of a smart, literate gay magazine yet also manages to be very dirty,' notes filmmaker Bruce LaBruce in his foreword. 'BUTT matters. BUTT fills a hole.'
With sexy pictures of, and candid interviews with: Asianpunkboy, Bruce Benderson, Peter Berlin, AA Bronson, Christopher Ciccone, Martin Degville, Tommy Deluca, Ed Droste, Al Eingang, Thomas Engel Hart, Marc Jacobs, Heinz Peter Knes, Marcelo Krasilcic, Bruce LaBruce, Inez van Lamsweerde, Lutz, Ryan McGinley, Alasdair McLellan, Matmos, Walter Pfeiffer, Terry Richardson, Paul Rutherford, Gus van Sant, Jeremy Scott, Jake Shears, Casey Spooner, Michael Stipe, Jonsi Thor Birgisson, Wolfgang Tillmans, Viktor & Rolf, Dominic Vine, Matthias Vriens, Rufus Wainwright, John Waters, Edmund White, Bernhard Willhelm, and Jonny Wooster.
