Brings new meaning to, “Good to the last drop.”
Finland’s national broadcaster:
Preparing a cup of morning joe won’t be the same when the Robert Paulig Roastery launches its line of coffee products enclosed in packaging featuring the risqué figures created by Tom of Finland.
The company released a press release in which it described Touko Laaksonen, also known as Tom of Finland, as one of the country’s best-known Finnish cultural influences and one of the world’s most important artists.
The company is to roll out its new Tom-flavoured brews in two options: filter coffee and whole roasted beans, each of which will be available in packages featuring four different illustrations of Laaksonen’s trademark beefy male subjects. The Roastery remained faithful to the homo-erotic theme by naming the products Built Bold and Heavy Duty.
With its bared male buttocks and exaggerated anatomical features, Tom of Finland’s cheeky artwork has graced products from postage stamps to towels and bed linen.
A feature-length documentary film about Tom of Finland is due to begin this spring, and is scheduled for release in February 2017.
A Finnish stamp designed as a tribute to Finnish homoerotic artist Touko Laaksonen – better known as Tom of Finland – have become the country’s biggest seller ever, and has received orders from 178 different countries.
“We haven’t seen this kind of interest before in Posti’s history and we probably won’t again soon.” Said Markku Penttinen, the head of development at Finland’s postal service> “Our starting point was to get Touko Laaksonen’s artwork in our stamps.”
“We know that he was very well-known globally. Of course the subject matter is also topical and much discussed. This equation has worked better than we anticipated.”
The stamp which went on sale on Monday coincided with an exhibition of Tom of Finland’s drawings and letters from the 1940s to his death in 1991.
The TOM OF FINLAND FOUNDATION is selling various one sheets and sets in the United States as long as supplies last.
Makes a GREAT Christmas card stamp to send to Bryan Fischer!
