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 😉
Mixing things up with a vintage European model with a little more on offer. This comes from my collection of contact sheets of French models that appeared in Cover Girl/Excite magazine. I love this shot of the model flashing her tan lined tits from beneath her pulled up jumper. We also get much more as she leans back on the bed opening those beautiful stocking clad legs. A very different look for a European model back then, as she has a half and half, with a nice little mound of hair above a smoothly shaven pussy.
Plenty of Oh la la in this shot 😉
Loving the classic 1960’s hairstyle and big dangly earrings as well. I have many more of these sets of European models showing off more than their UK counterparts, so may well need to create a gallery for them.
Another couple of shots from my collection of contact sheets from the Cover Girl/Excite Magazines with this one teasing us with two tempting views! The first gives a full frontal view of this temptress showing off her slender figure, small tan lined tits and natural bush, whilst reclining on a chair wearing long black gloves and a sheer top. The second is a view of her rather nice rounded rear, with just a hint of more on offer. Both views of this French fancy are very tantalizing, but which do you prefer 😉
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. 🙂
I thought I’d try and do a video for a change and found this little beauty over on VEF
with several other gems!
This is ‘Cover Girl’ (Film No.102) from 1960 featuring Erica in her only 8mm film appearance for Harrison Marks. It’s missing the opening credits, but is complete apart from that and is very good quality considering it’s age, but no sound on this one as I haven’t had time to add any. I’ll leave you to add your own sound effects! What else to say about this film other than letting you watch it? Well not only does it feature Erica and her fantastic body in all it’s glory, but also features Pamela Green, the man himself Harrison Marks and a brief appearance of Jean Spaul. You also get a look behind the scenes at the Gerrard Street studio and last but not least Erica oiled up! Enjoy!
