The delicious Ann Austin on the cover of the very first edition of Solo by Harrison Mark in 1958. I thought I had posted this cover some time ago, but checking back it seems I missed it, how remiss of me! So here it is and Ann looks as stunning as always sat there naked on the cover 🙂
The ample assets of Ann Austin from a restored silver gelatin photo. I’m not quite sure what the finger is doing and she doesn’t really look that happy or maybe it’s a sultry look that didn’t quite work?
There is no doubting that it’s Ann Austin on the cover of this US magazine Glamour Parade (February 1959), but interesting that the magazine has her named as Ellie Manning on the cover.
Thanks to Paul from Firebird Records for the cover and additional info that unfortunately the only other image inside the magazine is the same shot in black & white. No indication of the fact that she’s a British model, in fact it suggests she’s from New York! But we all know how the magazines and photographer’s back then liked to embellish on the truth around model names and where they came from 🙂
A great clear colour shot of Ann in white lace panties and negligee with the negligee open but strategically placed to cover her ample bosom enough to get her on the cover!
Ann Austin posing topless in white panties showing off her ample bosom from a restored silver gelatin print from Girlymag.
This shot of Ann Austin just blows me away, as I find it very stimulating for some reason! I think it’s the pose and the fact her ample bosom is about to burst out of that very small looking bra. Add in the hourglass waist and how those panties are pulled tight into her hips and Ann isn’t the only one bursting at the seams! Her ample bosom and fuller curvy figure is one of the reasons she was so popular back then and still is to many of us today!
Update: There is also a copyright stamp on the back of this shot of Ann that indicates the photo was taken by Serge Jacques 🙂
The cover of Gina by Rosalinda which was a small format magazine full of images featuring ‘Gina’ or as we know her Ann Austin! I’ve seen other magazines ‘by Rosalinda’ and had always assumed incorrectly that this was the name of the publisher or such. It actually turns out that Rosalinda is a female photographer and this magazine actually features a part mirror selfie of Rosalinda and Ann. Well there you go another thing I didn’t know!
A short haired Ann Austin looking delicious in open black negligee from Six No.6, which apart from 3 pages and the cover seems to be entirely dedicated to images of Ann including a fabulous strip tease set.
An original print of Ann Austin apparently asleep in bed, but with the sheet down to give us a flash of one of her magnificent boobs! There is something quite voyeuristic about this shot and seeing Ann’s boob as she sleeps, which I assume was the point of the shot. I have several other shots from this set and the whole premise of the set is Ann sleeping nude between those silk sheets, slowly waking up and getting out of bed to reveal more of her glorious body in different poses 🙂
There was some debate going on over the image I posted of the Avec Plaisir No.5 cover and if the model was actually Ann Austin. I wasn’t aware there was any doubt, as I immediately recognised it as Ann, but to confirm, here is the original 35mm Pamar slide of the same shot sent over by Kevin. I’ve also had it confirmed by an avid Ann collector, that it is indeed Ann, with the only outstanding question being why is this the only shot we’ve found of Ann posing with this glass and where are the other shots, if there are any?
One thing that no one seems to know though, is what happened to Ann, as she seems to have disappeared after her modelling career and is she still with us today? Anyone know?
Ann Austin on the cover of Avec Plaisir No.5 from the early 1960’s on the familiar loft set wearing dangly earrings once worn by Julie. I’m not too sure what’s in the glass, but I don’t think I’d drink it as it looks like some kind of witches brew!
