SKU: 126123

St. James, Lisa (featured)

 

Lisa St. James (vintage pinup digest magazine, 1950s)

 

N.p.: Dawson Publishing Co., 1950s. Vintage nude pinup digest magazine featuring model Lisa St. James, posing & emphasizing natural assets, in the nude & relaxing on various furniture. Sultry blonde w/ lush dimensions, pert, confident appeal. 

 

Hundreds of similar digest magazines were produced by fly-by-night operations, mainly around New York, notably Burmel Publishing (Lenny Burtman's enterprise). Many were published as photography and/or art "studies" booklets, w/ technical camera data, exposure chart, & the standard emphasis on sexual liberation; early issues featured several models per issue & many maintain airbrushing techniques rolled over from nudist magazines, much of the posing naturally obscures otherwise censored areas. Still scarce institutionally. 

 

32pp, 5.25 x 8.25 inches, B/W throughout, duochrome wrapper, saddle-stapled. Good overall, rubbing, creasing, spine splits, brief ink to front.
