"Painfully Obvious" is a collection of 40 provocative essays by the former publisher of Drummer magazine and popular San Francisco leather columnist Robert Davolt.
Originally written for the LeatherPage.com (the international leather community's "website of record" for news and commentary) this anthology takes an unorthodox look at leather relationships, community, contests, business, tradition, history and leadership. Inside perspective and practical tips on "What To Wear," "Leather On The Cheap" and "Passing The Bar," are delivered with authoritative research and barbed humor.
Introduction by respected leather columnist for the Minneapolis Lavender Steve Lenius. Foreword by International Mr. Leather 1996 and publisher of the LeatherPage.com Joe Gallagher. Biographical information by Henry B. (boy henry) Wilson
