Monique Devereux – Breaking Free (1968)

Monique Devereux (Monique Leitzau) posing beside some very big doors for Escort Magazine (April 1968). Apparently according to the blurb, which is always true (not!) she was training for the opera before coming to England to model! Well she definitely had the lungs for it!

More Monique Devereux Amongst The Lily Pads!

Monique Devereux up to her knees in the pond at Ewhurst from the pages of Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.1. More of her in the garden of Ewhurst with the pond in the background can be seen here, which were probably taken at the same time. Also a different colour version of her also in amongst the Lily pads … here

Nature’s Intention by Harrison Marks

Monique Devereux posing in long dark wig on the ‘Mandarin’ set for the cover of Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.2 (1969). I now have No.1 and No.2 of this superb super sized (10″ x 8″) magazine by Harrison Marks, each containing 64 full pages of uncensored shots of a range of his models. Most shots originally appeared in his other publications such as Kamera and Solo, but those were the retouched versions. These are bigger and bolder and have more bush in them than the Australian outback! More of which will be seen in coming posts.

Two questions though? Does anyone know if there were more than two and does anyone have a high quality image of the cover of No.1? My copy of No.1 was missing the cover, but complete apart from that, so I’d love a high resolution version of it if anyone has one?

In The Garden With Monique

Monique Deveraux posing in the long dressing gown that she wore several times and was a well used prop with GHM.  This was from the pages of Nature’s Intention Vol.1 No.1 ‘Harrison Marks – A Series of Natural Art Studies’ (1969) ans shows Monique in all her glory!  Takne in the grounds of Ewhurst Manor by with the small square pond in the background.

Give Us a Call Monique! (Original)

A restore 35mm slide of Monique Devereux posing nude for Harrison Marks in the late 1960’s.  Very odd setting with the colourful sheets, a coat of arms and an old fashioned phone, plus the obligatory rug!  MD still looks like she’s sucking her stomach in for this shot!
