Penile Papers is a collection of penis drawings from a kaleidoscopic crew of contributors, from TV presenters, professional artists, musicians, and designers to those in more prosaic professions, an IT consultant, a retail assistant, a pub landlady, and a friend’s grandmother. Each contributor was asked simply to contribute a hand-drawn image of a penis. Snippets of text scattered throughout the book are taken from contributor’s answers to a few questions posed by Myatt - as well as some of the ‘no thanks’ emails he received in response to his original request for drawings.
The edition of 200 features 62 different penises from individuals such as Vivienne Westwood, Beth Ditto, Mica Levi, Caroline Flack, Nick Night, Andreas Kronthaler, Andrew Huang, Giles Deacon and many more. All profits from Penile Papers will be split equally between the Terrence Higgins Trust and the Runnymede Trust.
