An Exciting Delivery!

An exciting (excuse the pun) delivery in the post this morning from a new contact in Austria. A collection of European magazines from the late 1960’s and some titles I’ve been after for a while. These magazines are more for my own collection rather than the site, but I’m bound to share them on here.

A collection of Cover Girl and Exciting magazines published by Nordisk Bladcentral, Copenhagen, plus a few other random magazines I’ll come on to in a minute. The Cover Girl & Exciting magazines were really exciting to see once opened, as they are unread! Yes, they are in mint condition, never read and like new. The cover and centre pages are glossy colour and immaculate and the pages are crisp and clean. You wouldn’t believe looking at them that these were published around 1965 and are 55 years old! I’m really please with Cover Girl No.12 featuring Nicole Isimat 🙂

Now onto the other magazines I received and these were for the site. These were Labelle Color No.10 and Lido No.6. Both caught my attention as they featured UK models on the cover I recognised in Gloria Lomax and Gerry Brown. Being for the European market the covers are uncensored, so I wondered if the contents were uncensored as well? My guess was correct, plus plenty of surprises inside!

Labelle is dedicated to Donna Ambros (Gloria Lomax) and is full of uncensored shots of Gloria I have never seen before. Lido, likewise is full of uncensored shots inside and all of well known UK based models. These include Christine Carter, Terry Peters, Gwen Ford and many other models that posed for Harrison Marks. The big surprise in this magazine is several shots of Nicky Stevens, fully uncensored and showing everything! I don’t think I’ve ever seen or have any shots of Nicky showing so much. Again both magazines are in brilliant condition and hardly touched.

Some great additions to my collection and plenty to keep me busy over the coming weeks. Another order has been placed for more of these great magazines, plus a few additional titles I’ve never seen before but look like they feature more models we all know showing more 😉

  1. These are amazing and amazing condition. Look forward to a peek. Lord knows how you found them and I can’t imagine them being cheap. Thanks so much

  2. Let the scana begin……

  3. A fabulous find indeed. We can I hope look forward to a winter selection to ease the boredom of Covid and the winter months, courtesy of your generosity.

  4. I would really like to see some more of the girl one the cover of the ‘Exciting’ at the far left of the collection above. She is gorgeous and so typical of the way girls looked in the late 1960s / early1970s.

    • Ah Billboard you are in luck! One of the reasons for buying that copy is for the model on the cover. I have 10 original contact sheets featuring over 110 images of this model, including several images that appear in this magazine.

      I’ll post one of the images for you until I get the magazine scanned.

  5. Ah picked up quite a few I see! Sweet haul!

  6. You’ve made quite a discovery, Wonder! Nicole Isimat is exceptionally eye-catching……

  7. What was the typical number of pages in these publications?

    • Typically 32 pages with a mix of colour, Tri-colour and black and white shots. Plus a large 3 page fold out centre page featuring the cover model 🙂

      • Thanks, Wonder. Nicole’s tri-fold must be spectacular – and fun to imagine the likes of Christine Carter getting the same “fully-on-display” treatment…..

        • It’s fantastic but the scanned image doesn’t do it justice when looking at her full length in the magazine. Christine was in a different magazine but still showing off more than usual 🙂

  8. Christine Carter (Tina Graham) was truly stunning, so it would be awesome to see her presented more fully than usual…
