Another shot of Wanda Liddell by Harrison Marks from this set of her highlighting what she has on offer and wearing the well-worn and well used long open negligee! Not that she needs to highlight what she has on offer as it’s fairly obvious 🙂
I love it when I come across some vintage glamour shots in my collection and I can trace them back to where they were published or other such details. Such is the case of the bushy ebony beauty above, as I have a collection of original images of her and several other natural beauties from the 1960’s. I have about 10-15 sets of models all of which I believed where from France or Europe due to the uncensored nature and style of the shots and I recognised several of the shots, so started digging through my archive.
To my delight some of them seem to have been published across two very similar publications in the 60’s that some of you may know with the titles ‘Cover Girl’ and ‘Exciting’. These were published by Nordisk Bladcentral, Copenhagen and distributed by Sangko-Norden, so I wasn’t far wrong with location and both magazines followed a very similar format. They both featured colour covers and back pages of a featured model, as well as a colour centrefold, the rest were black and white shots, but sometimes with a single coloured border or bi-coloured. All of the models had one thing in common, they were nearly all natural and showing off their thick bushy curls, as above as an example. I even have several copies of both publications in my own collection and you can see the cover and back page of Cover Girl No.12 featuring the same model below.
Now for the tenuous Harrison Marks link as not only did Nordisk Bladcentral publish these two magazines in the 1960’s, but several others as well including titles such as as Play-Girl, Bazaar, Lotus, Charme, Nouvelle Serie De Revue and Nouvelle Serie De Studio. Nearly all featured re-prints of Harrison Marks work from Kamera and his other publications and feature all the familiar models we know and love, with one slight difference. All of his images have had pussy hair brushed back into the shots, even on the likes of June Palmer, when we know she was clean shaven until late in her career. So from the look of the images I have and the content of these magazines the Europeans back then sure loved their women to have a full natural look 😉
So there you have it more of my collection traced back to point of publication, which for me always has a feeling of satisfaction. The only missing pieces of the puzzle are the model name and photographer? Finally, if anyone has any copies of Cover Girl or Exciting out there I’d love copies to see if I have any other models in my collection that also appeared within the pages of these magazines? Very doubtful I know, as they seem to be rather rare and hard to find out there. 🙂
Wendy Smith by Howard Roark from the 1970’s and definitely a view to raise the temperature. Wendy is a firm favourite of mine and just looking at this view raises things this end, but if all else failed you could always nestle between those big beauties of hers and keep warm that way 🙂
Diba Tomasin taken by Terry Sparks in November 1973 from a set of his contact sheets I own. A great set and shot of this perky little model by Terry and I love the use of the chains wrapped around her slender body highlighting those small perky tits and dark natural pussy. The pigtails are a nice touch as well and add to the overall cheeky feel to the shot.
I’ve now updated the Terry Sparks model page with 52 of the models that posed for him in the past, with even more to come under his Pseudonym of Paul Pantha, so that should keep me busy 😉
Joy Randall by Howard Roark and according to the details on the back of one of the contact sheets featuring Joy and a photo of her holding her California driving license she was only just 19 when this shot was taken. Obviously even at that young age she wasn’t afraid to open her legs and show off all her joyful charms. Another Californian girl with a great figure and tan lines worth showing off! I did wonder why there was a shot of her holding her driving license, but obviously taken to prove she was of legal age to pose like this 🙂
