Three wonderful pages of Vicky (Margaret Nolan) from Vue No.5 (1963) scanned from the original magazine and an article I’d not come across before? Thanks must go to Nils, who is a regular commenter on this blog, as he sent me this magazine and one other all the way from Sweden.
More to come from this magazine, as it includes many other familiar faces from the 1960’s and this blog.
Thanks again Nils!
A young June posing with some sort of lamp and this image was published in Nouvelle Serie De Studio No.48. This was published by Nordisk Bladcentral for the Scandinavian market, hence the allowance of pubic hair, even if it was edited in!
The images in these publications tended to have a blue hue to them and seemed to be rather more edited than the original Harrison Marks shots, which gives them a painting like feel.
A nude Beryl Gilchrist reprinted in the 1960’s Danish magazine ‘Forms in Color No.5’, which were colour versions of Harrison Marks shots and uncensored! I only seem to have several images from this magazine as one of the pages states it has over 130 pages and was published quarterly. Anyone have a full copy?
Two ‘uncensored’ shots of Jayne Tracey reprinted in the Danish publication ‘Nouvelle Serie De Revue’ No.46 by Harrison Marks on the space set used with many other models.
These magazines were published by Nordisk Bladcentral, Copenhagen and distributed by Sangko-Norden and there were several different publications, such as Play-Girl, Bazaar, Lotus, Charme, Nouvelle Serie De Revue and Nouvelle Serie De Studio. Nearly all were re-prints of Harrison Marks work from Kamera and his other publications and feature all the familiar models from his work.
What is quite surprising is the addition of pubic hair in all these re-printed publications, as they are obviously added on to the original images, as the bushes are too perfect and uniform, but done well! So we have a situation where for the UK market the images were retouched to remove any signs of pubic hair, due to UK censorship laws. But the re-prints in the Scandinavian countries, where pubic hair was deemed OK, they added the hair back in! It does beg the question as to why and could they not use GHM’s original untouched images rather than editing the pubic hair back in! The answer may be as simple as that most of the originals didn’t have pubic hair as most of the models shaved similar to Pamela Green and Vivienne Warren. Still seems like a lot of work to add the pubic hair back in, but then maybe the Scandinavian men liked their ‘Bush’, which you can’t complain about.
I’ve published several in the past and always wondered, but now you know. So when you see those perfect bushes on your favourite 1960’s models you will know they are probably from one of theses publications 🙂
The beautiful redhead of Ann Wilson posing nude in front of an old grandfather clock in Ewhurst Manor by Harrison Marks. This image was a reprint in a Danish magazine from the late 1960’s called ‘Forms in Color’ and included 24 uncensored colour shots mostly from Harrison Marks, but a few I don’t recognise!
