Photography books on subculture themes such as leather, latex, nylons, spanking, bondage and more traditional erotic art photography, such as modern pin-up girls and the male nude are included under Goliath's publication. Topics such as boxing, UFO's, motorcycles, and cult or bizarre subjects also fall into the range of Goliath's themes.[5]

Books and artistsEdit

The first book published by Goliath, titled "UFO" by Richard Brunswick (pseudonym), documented the UFO phenomenon and was intended to be a humorous publication. More recent art publications have included Paul M. Smith, German artist Bodo Korsig, as well as photography by Los Angeles-based artist Charlie White and Charles Gatewood, documentor of the subcultural sexual revolution in New York in the 60’s and 70’s. Goliath has published books with the works of erotic photographer and punk-rocker Dave Naz, the Belgian artist Pierre Radisic, rock photographer Derek Ridgers, gender provocateur and chronicler of the industrial and goth culture Fred Berger, artist and photographer Paul Smith, fashion, fine art, erotic and fetish photographer Christine Kessler as well as erotic photographer and producer Holly Randall, hemp-activist Rob Griffin, alternative sex’n’punk photographer The Lovely Brenda from New York, retro pin-up specialist Octavio Arizala or fetish fashion photographer Emma Delves-Broughton.[6] In addition to publishing the work of professional photographers, Goliath also has an "amateur series" which culls the works of amateur photographers with a focus on subculture and fringe themes.
