Virgin (Vintage adult paperback, Joanne Latham front cover, 1979)


New York: Midwood Publications , 1979. Midwood Book 61276, cover price $2.25. Vintage adult paperback featuring front panel photo of legendary British model, Joanne Latham. Story about nymph returning from Swiss boarding school. 


Joanne in white lace top, unbottoned, evergreens in the background, pretty pink carnation in her pinned-up hair. Same photo sessions used for "Over-Developed" (Jason Hytes, Midwood 61511), showing Joanne in same top w/ flower, eating exotic fruit. Joanne carried on the British custom of producing women w/ mass appeal, voluptuous curves, & "Page Three Girl" credentials. From her youth in Wolverhampton to lessons in ballet, to first nude photos appropriated by Guccione at Penthouse in 1979, to her post-modeling career shortly before 1990, & her devotion to spirituality & yoga, Joanne's often beguiling icy gaze & unquestionable dimensions 40-25-35 still captivate on paper, vinyl album sleeves, even VHS slipcases for films she never appeared in. She also appeared on several magazine covers, including Game, Partner, Mayfair, Response, Oui Letters, Pillow Talk, & Family Letters. She also enjoyed moderate popularity appearing on foreign magazine covers, several from France, Germany, Spain. 


Very Good Plus, faint creasing to front, even toning, closed tear to crown. 


Steve Sullivan, "Glamour Girls: The Illustrated Encyclopedia," #85, 1999. [Book ID 125197] [Vintage Paperbacks (VP)]
