Linda Cadi (2 vintage adult pinup digest magazines, 1950s)


New York / Miami, FL: Marr Publishing / Nu'Art Publications, 1950s. Two vintage adult digest magazines featuring Spanish model Linda Cadi, seen here in photographic studies as a pinup/figure model, wearing heels, hose, garters, dresses, several nearly nude poses. According to the Marr digest, Linda was 22, 113 pounds, 36-24-35 dimensions, a Latin dancer "featured on several National T.V. shows demonstrating her fine ability," an avid food lover. Both issues seem to spawn from a single photo session, or Linda took the same pair of earrings along to each modeling gig. Progressive enough to showcase models of different nationalities.


Hundreds of similar digest magazines were produced by fly-by-night operations, mainly around New York, it seems. Early issues maintain airbrushing techniques rolled over from nudist magazines, but much of the posing naturally obscures otherwise censored areas. Still scarce institutionally. 


Lovely Linda Cadi [For Artists, Sculptors, and Figure Photographers] (Nu'Art, Linda in fishnets, elegant gloves, heels, nightgowns, bathing suits); 

Linda: Artist Model [For Artists and Photographers] (Marr, ties to Marno in Miami, emphasizing legs/butt). 


Both 32pp, ~5.25 x 8.25 inches, color wrapper, B/W throughout. Very Good Plus overall, light rubbing, spine stress, rust, price notations.
