Stinger, Maria (featured)


Maria Stinger (vintage pinup digest magazine, 1950s)


N.p.: Dawson Publishing Co., 1950s. Vintage nude pinup digest magazine featuring model/actress Maria Stinger, posing & emphasizing natural assets, in lingerie, gloves, heels, hose, garters, on bed. Stinger was born in Philadelphia, grew into an exotic variation of Marilyn Monroe, posed for Bunny Yeager, found a way into B-movies & nudie loops, her flame extinguished as tragically as Monroe's. A warm demeanor is rampant in this appearance. 


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 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. Very Good, moderate spine rubbing, ink price notation.
