The Line & Form of Lynn Shaw

The majestic Lynn Shaw on the cover of Line and Form No.26. Another of the beautiful tri-coloured covers produced by the publishers of this magnificent late 1950’s or early 60’s magazine featuring the fabulous study of nudes such as Lynn.

Hilde’s No Pudding!

Hilde Beck from a double page spread in tri-colour from Parade No.1386. A fabulous figure of a girl and has a string vest ever looked so good on someone as Hilde, she’s definitely no pudding although I’d have for dessert 🙂

Light & Shade Magazine Covers (1950’s)

A set of covers from the publication ‘Light & Shade’ from the late 1950’s. I have a set of 15 covers from No.1 to No.15, but have no idea if that is a full set? These were produced by Russell Gay and published by Dalrow Publication Ltd. Pennine Publications, Bolton. A very similar set of magazines in the same style, including Tr-coloured covers was published under the title ‘Line & Form’, but by Eva Grant (I also have a set of these to edit and post).

I love the covers of this magazine especially the use of one primary colour per cover. and I think my favourites are No.8, No.9 (June Simpson) and No.12. Thanks must go to Paul from Firebird Records for all of these magazines and covers, a superb collection!

Gloria Latham – Line and Form No.12 (1950’s)

The beautiful tri-coloured cover of Line and Form No.12 featuring Gloria Latham from the late 1950’s. The covers of this magazine were superb and featured various posed models in shadows with most highlighted with a single colour such as this one.

Anna Verdi – A Woodland Houri!

Anna Verdi as Nanette Pouchard from France, appearing as a woodland houri in Heels and Hose Vol.3 No.3 Quarterly edition (1961) covering April/May/June. I had to look up what Houri meant as I hadn’t got a clue with that one, but it means a voluptuously beautiful young woman, or nymph both very apt! This scan along with several others come from Oldtimeerotica over on Tumblr, so thanks to Ads for allowing me to share his scans here.

I also noticed looking through the scans that a number of Harrison Marks models appear in the same magazine, but again under different names, including Dawn Grayson, Cleo Simmons and Lena Ellis to name three. I’ll post those pages soon as well.
