New York: Forum International, 1991. V16 N10, January 1991. Distributed by Curtis Circulation Co. (CCC logo on front). Vintage erotica digest magazine featuring house favorite British model Joanne Latham on the front (Pat Hill), in colonial garb w/ the added touch of red nylons; she's posed in hats before but always to her advantage. A Wolverhampton native, a dancer before her first professional nude photos were appropriated by Guccione at Penthouse (1979), an often beguiling icy gaze & unquestionable lush dimensions still captivate on paper, vinyl album sleeves, even VHS slipcases for films she never appeared in.

Joanne also appeared on several Midwood Books paperbacks.
