The cover and an inside image of ‘Presenting Brenda Graham’ dedicated of course to Brenda. The cover titillates us with Brenda in underwear and stockings posing on the sofa, whereas inside we get to see more of Brenda topless on the bed and other similar poses. Very little information on who took the photo’s or who published the magazine, but it seems to be a set of magazines, as I have other similar covers to this one for other models including Sylvana Manto and Eve Eden.
US model Diane Kaye from the late 1950’s showing how to look extremely elegant in just long gloves and high heels! Her figure looks fabulous, especially her large round bosom, as she perches precariously on that sofa with her legs up. She looks like she’s just come back from some glamorous party and dropped her dress to show what little she had on below it all night! Well that’s what my over active imagination thinks 🙂
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!
From Dawson Publishing Co. comes the cover of a small format magazine dedicated to Eve Eden, who also appears in tri-colour on the front and back covers. There was a collection of these magazines, all titled ‘Presenting … Model Name’ and all under the guise of being a magazine for artists and photographers. Any excuse to see your favourite model nude!
Thanks to Oxxbridge Galleries for this colourful magazine cover featuring Eve!
