O'Day, Judy (featuring)


Bizarre Beauties (vintage pinup digest magazine, 1950s)


N.p.: N.p., 1950s. Vintage nude pinup digest magazine featuring model posing seminude & emphasizing natural assets, w/ heels, hose, garters, applying makeup, rotary phones & couches; centerfold. O'Day had an impeccable smile, natural glow, exuded confidence.


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, 5.5 x 8.25 inches, B/W throughout, color wrapper, saddle-stapled. Very Good Plus, light rubbing/spine stress, faint soil.


Jim Linderman, "Proto-Porn: The Art Figure Study Scam of the 1950s," 2012. [Book ID 126134] [Magazines]
