Chicago, IL: Relim Publishing Co., 1957-59. Ten vintage adult digest magazines emphasizing buxom women, focus on art, fiction, international culture, some lean towards French interest. Began as a digest magazine w/ foldout centerfolds, always featured the best models/photographers (like Russ Meyer), folded in mid 1990s. Arguably the slickest of its kind. Early issues featured "Gift Stamps" that could be excised and redeemed for novelty gifts. B/W/Color throughout, ~82pp. Sometimes as "Fling: Passport to Pleasure." Worthy "Gent" competitor. Included are issues from its early days, notably the first four, when still formatted as a digest: V1 N1, 1957 (Jack Howard cover, Bunny Yeager, Art Buchwald, Alberto Moravia, Russ Meyer, Charles Dennis, Fling Folio "pullout" Jackie Miller, French comic book, Texan Lee Sharon 6pp); V1 N2, 1957: Robert Sutz cover, Russ Meyer, S.J.
