Artistic Models (vintage pinup digest magazine, 1950s)


New York: Art Foto's Publications, 1950s. [V1 N1]. Vintage nude pinup digest magazine featuring Bettie Page 1pp, Maria Stinger  9pp/center, burlesquer Betty Howard 1pp, & other models posing & emphasizing natural assets, several outdoors settings, several heels, funky chairs, drapes.


Hundreds of similar digest magazines were produced by fly-by-night operations, mainly around New York, notably Burmel Publishing (Lenny Burtman's enterprise). Many were published as photography and/or art "studies" booklets, w/ technical camera data, exposure chart, & the standard emphasis on sexual liberation; early issues featured several models per issue & many maintain airbrushing techniques rolled over from nudist magazines, much of the posing naturally obscures otherwise censored areas. Still scarce institutionally. 


32pp, 5.25 x 8.25 inches, B/W throughout, color wrapper, saddle-stapled. Very Good overall, ink price to front, moderate spine rubbing.


Jim Linderman, "Proto-Porn: The Art Figure Study Scam of the 1950s," 2012. [Book ID 126132] [Magazines]
