Lorraine Burnett in long blonde wig on 3 separate covers of Line and Form during the early 1960’s. The publishers of this magazine defiantly got their moneys worth from Lorraine as she appeared on the cover of three consecutive editions of Line and Form with No.20 (Yellow), No.21 (Orange) and No.22 (Blue).
Lorraine also appeared multiple times within the pages of these editions plus as well as others, so obviously a favourite. These are fabulous shots of Lorraine’s curvy figure on the covers and the use of light and shade to highlight her magnificent bust! I think my favourite is the blue cover 🙂
Rita Landre (Pamela Green) pouting as she poses for the camera of Harrison Marks. Taken from the magazine Études Moderne P31 (1950’s) by Marks and featuring plenty of early Pam as herself and Rita.
Thanks to Firebird Records for a copy of this fantastic early Harrison Marks publication
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!
Thanks to Paul from Firebird Records I have a growing collection of 35mm slide sets (200+ at the last count), with some of the sets being of well known models from that time. I also have a number of individual slides and unknown models of varying quality, and I’m slowly working through them to try and restore them, as most are faded or have that familiar purple tinge.
The above is one of the single restored slides and of Ann Wilson a popular model of Harrison Marks and others in the late 1960’s. This was originally very red, but think it’s come up pretty well and works still being slight red, as Ann was a redhead and the shirt was dark red. Unfortunately the highlights were blown out around her chest, but you still see the important bits i.e the small perky nipples! Not sure about the fake brick wallpaper in the background, but it works!
Thanks to Paul for this and all the other slides, most of which he eventually puts up for sale over on eBay 🙂
Nancy Roberts on the cover of Connoisseurs Choice and Modelling Review Vol.4 No.2. I have a whole collection of CC & MR covers, many with familiar faces and bodies on the covers, it’s just a case of getting round to edit and post them, but love this one of Nancy.
I rather like this attractive model from a restored 35mm colour slide sent over by Paul from Firebird Records, but have no idea who she is? It comes from a set of 12 slides of this model posing in and stripping out of a sheer pink negligee on the wicker chair, but that’s about it! I’m not even sure that isn’t a wig which doesn’t help in trying to identify her, but anyone recognise her?
UK model Mandy Morgan from an original 35mm negative sent over by Paul from Firebird Records. Mandy is another new model to the site, but one I was going to publish shortly anyway, as I have a set of 4 original 35mm colour slides of her as well. I know very little in the way of background to Mandy, other than she appeared in Spick & Span, Girl Illustrated and a few other typical 1960’s glamour publications. In this image and the others I have, Mandy has small very cone liked shaped tits that look a bit odd, but hey tits are tits 🙂
I’ve posted this cover featuring Dawn Grayson before, but it was a very poor quality version even by my standards. Thanks to Paul from Firebird Records I now have a much better version of Girl Illustrated Vol.4 No.38 (1970) cover featuring Dawn. What wasn’t obvious to me until I saw a clearer version is the sneaky view of one her her small pert tits in the shadows of the shot, very discreetly done I think! Enjoy the better version of this cover and dawn 🙂
Another shot from the collection of original Philip Gotlop prints sent over by Paul from Firebird Records, but this time the model is recognisable, especially if you follow this site. The model so beautifully highlighted by the light and shadows is non other than Sylvana Manto (Madelaine Bannister). A stunning shot of her by Philip and I do wonder why his early glamour work has gone mostly unnoticed or avoided rather than his more popular work? Maybe as he became more popular he didn’t want to be associated with this side of his photography, but we all have to start somewhere!
