Bernarr Macfadden (1868 - 1955), internationally famous during his lifetime but almost unknown today, called the "Father of Physical Culture," nicknamed "Body Love" Macfadden by Time magazine, was a flamboyant personality, true visionary, millionaire publisher, and life-long advocate of physical fitness, natural food, outdoor exercise, and the natural treatment of disease. He inspired millions of people around the world to live healthful and vigorous lives. He was branded a "kook" and a charlatan by many, was arrested on obscenity charges, denounced by the medical establishment, and campaigned tirelessly against "pill-pushers," processed foods, and prudery.

It is to the memory of Bernarr Macfadden and his many achievements that this web site is dedicated.


The photograph below shows Macfadden when he was about 65!

Watch Me Create a Book!



As part of my artwork based on dreams, I kept a journal-sketchbook which I am now editing and converting into a one-of-a-kind book on dreams and their interpretation. I plan to publish this book when it is finished.
Starting on or before September first, I'll be mailing out the first 6 chapters as I complete them (approximately 1 chapter every 2 weeks). The finished manuscript will be entirely hand-drawn and hand-lettered -- approximately 200 pages.
Join this mailing list and see my book taking shape. It's COMPLETELY FREE!.
