1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp TOP 500 REVIEWER on Nov. 19 2010
Format: Hardcover
Jokes have been made about 'the family jewels' for centuries, long before feminists drew focus to the personal possessions of feminine charms. And the phrase sticks, so here is a book celebrating those infamous jewels in a compendium of images that range from sophisticated photographic classics to quick shots to comic drawings to subtle paintings, erotic, humorous, decadent, and monumental - and every permutation of that adjective! Ten years ago this book would have appealed to a different audience than it does today. Curious women who have a proclivity to shopping, men who feel the need to compare with the broader spectrum of their birthright, youths who wonder about adult changes, and men who simply appreciate the flagship of masculinity - all will find this survey of art and photography focused on male attributes an informing as well as entertaining read.

The artists represented in this festival are both very well known (GAZ, Tom Bianchi, Kingdom 19, Victor Gadino, Steve Walker, Giovanni, Peter Arnold, etc etc) and up and coming (!) such as Ismael Alvarez, Guillem Medina, Mark Lynch, Dylan Ricci and the fascinating artist William Donavan. The views of the jewels extend from the extreme closeups to the full portrait of the owner. Some of the images are a bit self indulgent but others are art of the finest quality. Some abstract the target, as in the very beautiful ceramic bowl and vase decors by Hinrich Kröger, and some decorate the figure with rich beads as in the works by Adrian Alicea. The spectrum is enormous. The reproductions are of high quality and the book is both sensual and entertaining. Another fine art book from Bruno Gmünder Verlag! Grady Harp, November 10

The Family Jewels, or, A Family of Jewels! Nov. 16 2010

Provocative and racy, but stunning shots. Feb. 13 2011
By Coquichulo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This anthology of penis art from Bruno Gmunder covers everything from cartoonish renditions to artistic interpretations to fashion to porn to photographic tributes. It is a phallus smorgasbord that will enthrall guests who discover it on the coffee table. Be careful, though: you may want to keep it away from children due to the explicit nature of the shots.

Fine quality Jewels Nov. 14 2011
By Mikey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Full of sexy photos, drawings and paintings, 'Jewels - Adoration of the penis' is a treasure of a book. Pages and pages of delightful shots here for the reader to enjoy.
Additionally there is a good litte introduction from Robert W Richards and an index at the back detailing locations and websites of all photographers included.
Jewels is a treasure!

"Jewels" Needs More Than a 'Little Blue Pill' to Satisfy. Jan. 21 2011
By S. McInnis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I own Dr. Sherwin Carlquist's "Uncut", Giovanni's Private Parts, and Giovanni's Un*/ Cut. These are similar sized (9 x 7 x 1 inch) books. I found Giovanni's and Carlquist books more interesting, than Robert W. Richard's "Jewels".

Jewel's book size (9 inch tall, 6.5 inch wide, 1 inch thick) with color or black & white prints are various in context. Most are photographs, some are drawings. Some with many objects in the print, some with just the man. Some are partly clothed, some are set in cars, or on furniture, though half are just the man with his 'jewels'. Intact or circumcised, flaccid or aroused, close-up or the whole male. I found the presentation too small, with too little continuity. "Jewels" left me want for Carlquist or Giovanni's work.
