Van Nuys, CA: Marquis Publishing, 1971. V1 N6 (stated N2 on copyright), Summer 1971; B/W/Color throughout, 64pp, $3.00 cover price, saddle-stapled. Vintage adult magazine featuring imaginative photography of nude women, emphasizing thigh-high nylon hosiery, high heels, legs, the great outdoors. Batters' prolific fetish photography of contour, nylon hosiery, simple yet elegant high-heeled shoes (even sneakers), was self-published for much of his career. During these years, before his work for Parliament News, set the standard for future photographers like Eric Kroll, Chas Krider. This series ran ~10 issues (1970-71?), rampant is his progressive approach & multicultural themes. A career highspot. Series oddly numbered, some issues claiming "Summer Issue 1971".
