Holiday Recommendations Guest Post #2: Harry Ruhe

Tinkebell, a well-known artist in Holland, made a beautiful glossy nude calendar. The profits are for a few Asian prostitutes. Tinkebell took her clothes off, so that those girls don’t have to do that anymore. The perfect produced calendar is for 2013 – just a few weeks to go - but can be considered as an autonomous artist book. For the CultClub she signed some copies.

The price is € 45,-; postage is € 10 extra (for USA and Canada it’s more, but the CultClub is paying the difference).

Orders to: CultClub, Stadhouderskade 133, 1074 AW Amsterdam. or direct to:
