OH/NY: Periodical House, 1957. Two issues of vintage pin-up magazines, the first two (of apparent 3) issued for this title, 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 a few issues, Ho! folded. Periodical House also published another oblong series, Hi (and High) [The Tall Magazine for Men], but that too folded early, after just 6 issues. Distributed by Ace.
