Garter Parade (10 vintage adult digest magazines, 1960-62)


New York: S & G Publishers, 1960-62. Eleven vintage adult digest magazines, featuring photographic layouts of women in heels, hose, & garters, some outdoor scenes, promoted as "figure study" manuals for the aspiring photographer. Published likely by Leonard Burtman, whose endless network of smut peddlers included dealings w/ kingpin Reuben Sturman; was he the "S" in "Selbee," or "S & G"? Like many of Burtman's imprints, this series notable for popular models, great title & design, consistency. Each issue featured models previewed on the covers. Probably no more than 50 issues produced, a fantastic compendium of both American camera clubs & international photographers/models.


Photographers/model uncredited, however Marr (NY publisher of similar "studies") credits the following in their series "Buxie": Anthony Guyther (the "G" in "S & G"?), Bernard (of Hollywood? Keith?), Fritz Henlee, Jerry Tubbs, Tom Kallard, John Wilson. Since imagery in "Garter Parade" largely portrays female legs, hosiery, heels, other photographers, like Elmer Batters & Ron Vogel, British glamour guy Harrison Marks, or French leg-fetishist Roland Jacques, come to mind.
