Taschen Miami and Atelier Gallery Exhibit 3-D Penises and Boobs for Art Walk (NSFW Photos)

German art book publisher Taschen's got the 20-pound book thing under control. Remember The Big Penis Book and The Big Book of Breasts? Old sexy pics of giant members and huge tatas? These are the kinds of art books that stay on the coffee table and aren't relegated to propping your door open. This sort of irreverence is the kind of brilliance akin to the Everyone Poops book.

The thing is, Taschen folks aren't just geniuses, they're super geniuses and have now made these two captivating volumes into 3-D books. Any questions you needed answered on size, shape, or color (though not technique) will be answered behind these covers. On top of that, these titillating, lifelike images will be exhibited in Wynwood's Atelier gallery for Art Walk this weekend, so it's like you're going to get to see that three-foot penis in real life. Check the jump for a few of the books' NSFW photos (mostly of big cans, but there's a grotesquely long schlong too).



The exhibition "3-D ArtVergnügen!" is showcasing a large photo selection of 3-D photography that also includes non-sex parts, with works by Ellie Perla and Carlos Rodriguez-Feo. According to gallery representative Ellie Perla, "We hope that 3-D books and 3-D Stereocards will entice people to preserve tangible and authentic images of today for future generations, images that will not disappear in a computer crash or become obsolete as a new operating system is installed." Apparently, we need to keep the 3-D dream alive! No problemo, they're tons of fun. For now, here's a selection of 2-D:

Catch "3-D ArtVergnügen!" at the Second Saturday art walk at Atelier (2732 NW Second Avenue, Miami) on Saturday from 6 to 11 p.m. The show runs through July 5.
