Swank (9 vintage adult magazines bound together, 1961-68)

SKU: 125673

New York: Royal Publications/ Magnum-Royal, 1961-68. Formerly NY/NJ: Male Publishing Corp, c.1958. Nine issues of vintage pinup magazines, primitively but solidly bound together at the spines w/ blank paper spine; blank paper wrapper & endpapers excised; uniformly trimmed. Presumably made by amateur binder or hobbyist, perhaps collected for certain authors/models/artists. SWANK began as a pulpy non-nude men's magazine aimed at fine living, & by the 1960s issues saw more nudity & sleazy ads. The mag currently releases pornographic content. The present issues benefitted from great photography & models, full-pg Wenzel cartoons, where earlier issues favored illustration from Paul Rader & Arthur Saroff, quality writers & articles.
