Foto-rama (Vintage adult digest magazine, Debra Downey cover, 1973)


New York: Arena Publishing Corp., 1973. V7 N9, January 1973; distributed by Kable News, B/W throughout, 98pp, 5 x 7 inches, 75 cents cover price, side-stapled & perfect-bound. Vintage adult digest magazine, featuring photography of nude women, editorials on celebrities, sports, vice. Early issues boast swimsuit models, burlesque, wartime themes, but for its duration always profuse photographs & great models (some issues w/ color inserts). Russ Meyer was a major contributor (was he Myron Fass, editor of several issues?). Similar to Eye, Pic, Tab, Vue, etc.; later issues (about 1960) began to feature nude photography, much eerily similar to 1950s camera clubs. More pornographic through progression. Much of the editorial was sensational in nature, often brash, inevitably exploitation.
