Fanni Leigh (Polly Eltes) on the cover of Skirt No.25 with the photo taken by Terry Sparks. I always like it when I come across a published image either on the cover or within the pages of a vintage magazine that I also have in my original collection and this falls into that category. I recently published a similar black and white version of Franni by Terry here, then what do I find on my travels but a magazine cover featuring one of the shots, but in colour. Unfortunately I don’t have any colour shots from this set of Franni, but at least I now know the colour of her top!
It’s always quite satisfying when you see a shot like above and can identify the model, photographer and date it was taken. The original shots were taken in August of 1972, so one assumes this was published later 72 or 73? Unfortunately I only found the cover, so no idea if Franni went on to reveal more on the inside pages!
Crushing corsets it’s June Russell on the cover of the Harrison Marks publication Femme. The first issue of Femme appeared in the summer of 1958 It had a Harrison Marks’ photograph of June Russell on the cover but it featured photographs ‘from Britain, America and the Continent’ of nude and semi-nude female models by other photographers as well as GHM himself. The 1958 edition had no issue number and may have been a one-off, but another issue appeared some time later. From this issue ‘Femme’ reverted to the tried and tested 7″x 5″ pocketbook size and appeared as The New Femme No.1.
Stunning shot of June Russell in white corset, pink frilly knickers and fishnets and the floral wallpaper makes an appearance in many of GHM’s early shots.
Della Fox from the distinctive cover of the 1950’s magazine Connoisseurs Choice & Modelling Review Vol.5 No.2. Other covers I’ve posted of CC & MR can be seen here
Danielle Denese sat in an armchair topless from the cover of Coral No.55. Worth every shilling of it’s cover price I think, even if Danielle is looking very pouty on the cover and what is that stange mouse thing on the table?
Jenny Lane give us a flash of her left tit and sheer panties on the cover of Cloud No.10. The use of only one colour seems to work, although yellow seems to be quite a harsh colour to use, but it sure stands out and highlights Jenny on the cover.
