I find value in the basic precepts of nudism. A basic premise is that people have minds and bodies which both deserve care and pride. Shame follows from ignorance and misguided social custom. For health and enjoyment, both the body and the mind must be cared for diligently and appreciated for all of their wonder and natural beauty. My interest in nudism has motivated me to collect together materials for a nudist library. I have a very impressive collection from around the world, which I believe includes the majority of all regularly published periodicals and books. I do not have club newsletters or photographs, and I only have a smaller fraction of incidentally published articles from other magazines (such as Time, Newsweek, Der Spiegel, etc.). My goal is to eventually make this all publically accessible, but as of now my circumstances do not permit me to realize this goal.
