LOCAL hunks are on the verge of going global with the success of a fine art book by Lennox Heads photographer John Bortolin.

The racy book, Manscapes, that features local men in all their muscular glory, has been selling like the proverbial hotcakes on the Northern Rivers.

Now Mr Bortolin is in talks with national and international publishers about distributing it Australia and worldwide.

"My long-term goal is to Manscape myself around the world, producing a book each year featuring men from different countries - Manscapes London, Manscapes New York and so on," he said.

Manscapes is currently available online at www.manscapes.com.au  or at The Book Warehouse in Lismore and Ballina & Mary Ryan's in Byron Bay.
