Rope Ballet: Bond by New Manhattan Studios
'Bond does not disappoint his fans as he turns up the heat in a series of casual, lifestyle essays to complement the more formal art nude studies. As he matures as a model, the confidence and command that he brings to his work is palpable. This is Bond as you've never seen him: bold, wet and steamy.'
At the end of January, I did a piece about Bond: Private Portfolio 2, New Manhattan Studio's new uncensored look at one of their, and FH's, favorite subjects, Bond! At the time of that posting however, only the hard cover edition was available for purchase. As of the week however, you can also get your hands on the soft cover, and low priced digital download editions. Although not technically 'hard' covers, the soft cover, and digital editions have their own unique hardening appeal.
The Private Portfolio series features the uncensored work of New Manhattan Studios. This book has 62 pages of art nude and physique art studies taken in both New York and California during our second year of working with the man who has turned out to be the studio's most popular model. Most of the images (the work of three staff photographers, Alex Corso, Wm Weyeneth and Wes Triplett) have never been published. Together, they represent a definitive collection of the best of our most recent work with Bond. Captured over the course of six months, the collection is a fitting sequel to his first private portfolio, featuring our work during the first year of his modeling career.
