The Comics Volume I

The Comics is the most affordable compilation of Tom of Finland’s popular panel stories. This volume features 14 stories, including the first completed by Tom in 1946, and the last, done in 1986.

Tom of Finland began drawing cartoons at age five. The stories are arranged chronologically in a book sized to fit perfectly in one hand —

The Foundation is working on an installation of Koha for our librarians.
We've hit a snag, and are hoping a person with Linux experience can lend us a hand.
The installation is almost complete, just two more modules need to be added.
