Advocate Magazine Review.
The amazing art historian, Grady Harp, wrote this about Daddy Hunt: This book is filled with hairy rough trade types, though without a doubt many of these models are gentle caring guys in reality. The photos are posed indoors and outdoors, dressed and undressed, aroused or at ease. And in every full page image there is personality pouring out all over the place.
Blade T Bannon became highly respected with the success of being featured in HAIR: Hairy Men in Gay Art, in FUR: the love of Hair, and in Turnon: Muscles - all published by Bruno Gmunder, as well as his own earlier successful publication My Mentor, My Guide: A Handbook for Daddies and Boys for the new Generation. There is definitely a public for Bannon's art and it seems to be growing. This is a well-produced, richly colorful monograph of Daddies!
Bay Area Reporter, April 2008, Jim Piechota, My Mentor, My Guide. In the review he states: "Dubbed a "Handbook for Daddies and Boys for the New Generation." San Francisco Resident Blade Bannon's new handbook smartly addresses the theories of male bonding, sexual role-play, and the meaningful, highly intimate connections that develop between men active within the BD/SM arena."
