Well, he’s got a new book that’s soon to be released — and this one comes with another taste of Fresno. Whether that’s tasty or distasteful is up to you.
“T & T & A” is the title of Stamolis’ new book. The first T is for tacos. The T & A part, well you know what that means, right? Basically, the book is 200 pages of naked women and tacos (not a euphemism). It’s not naked women eating tacos. It’s just pictures of tacos next to pictures of naked women. I guess you’d call it alt-porn with food.
I’m guessing this is either (a) the greatest thing you’ve ever heard or (b) quite offensive. But that’s probably the point. “Frezno” had that this-book-might-offend-you thing going too.
Of local interest: About half of the tacos in the book hail from Fresno — places such Tacos Tijuana, Don Pepe, Castillo’s and Taqueria Superior. The rest are from L.A. and New York. Stamolis said maybe one of his models is from Fresno, but didn’t sound too sure.
The book is due to be released in March via Sump Books. For now, there’s a Web site with some teasers of what’s included in the book. Before I give you the link, I need to make it clear this is VERY, VERY, VERY NSFW. Now proceed, if you wish.
