Introducing Pecker, the book, the bible of bang sticks, the one stop cock shop, is the world’s biggest collection of knobs, dongs, penis pencillings and schlong scribbles.
Pecker is the brainchild of designer and visual artist Jon Bland and copywriter Louie Zeegen, we caught up with them ahead of their upcoming launch at KK Outlet this Thursday to chat bollocks:
Pecker. How did the book come about?
We lived together for a few months when Jon moved to London at the beginning of this year. After helping each other on various other projects, we decided to spend the time under the same roof producing something together. A penis book was the obvious choice.
What was your thinking behind Pecker? Is it all a clever social commentary on the domination of males in the creative industries? Or cause willies are funny?
The beautiful thing about drawing a penis is that anyone can produce a belter. It’s as simple as that really, but yeah sure, the social commentary thing works too.
The book launch is Thursday 22nd at KK Outlet, can you reveal a bit about it?
We’re taking over KK with shit loads of dicks and beer. It’ll be more like a mini exhibition than just a normal book launch. It’s a must for any penis enthusiast.
Who’s Peckers can we expect to see on show?
There are some big names that we’re super chuffed to have inside our book, such as Ian Wright, Marion Deuchars, Jean Jullien and Mike Perry, but also people who aren’t illustrators at all, just massive cock lovers. There’s a healthy mix of superstars, professionals and total novices. Cock lover no. 1 Mr Bingo has written us a lovely foreword too.
Who’s Peckers have been most impressive so far?
We’re big fans of George Heaven’s – he drew in it about 10 minutes at the Kiosk Independent Book Fair in Peckham that we had a stall at. Quick, hilarious and disgusting – the perfect pecker. We’ve had other great ones from Stella Murphy, Li-En Yeung and Leon Karssen. After seeing thousands, we are hard to shock now, so generally the more bizarre the better.
How long does it stay up for?
Just over a week, but the book will pleasure you forever. Mum’s Christmas present sorted right? www.pecker.world

Thanks Louie and Jon
