OH/NY: Periodical House, 1957-58. Six issues of vintage pin-up magazines, a selection of the short-lived oblong pocket magazines, perhaps designed to accompany the habitual "man on the go": fold pin-up magazines in half, place in shirt pocket, return to incessantly. Bent on pin-ups & music, great illustrations (some by Alvin Hollingsworth, Black artist of Harlem), boxing, "photo stories," color centerfolds (where stated). After issue one, Hi, title changed to High, and after these six issues became standard-size. Periodical House also published Ho!, but that too folded early, after just 2 issues. Distributed by Ace. Included are the first six issues, complete set of the oblong editions: May 1957, August 1957, October 1957, December 1957, February 1958, April 1958. Highlights: Harold Robbins, James J.
