Malia is looking for a husband, and any man will do! I’m assuming the reader will hope he is the one who will do. The article states that there are nine women for every man on the island, so you have a pretty good chance of attracting one of these exotic ladies. This issue of King’s Man 1960 has a number of ‘Island Girl’ spreads; Malia’s article features only one brown-eyed, raven-haired ‘Polynesian lovely.’ I like her black and white pictorial, obviously with color you can get the rich island hues but I think the shadows and contrast really work. What a tropical babe! Enjoy!
Last week my laptop crashed and I lost everything, it’s a sad and stressful experience. I feel silly about the sense of loss. The good thing is I have physical copies of my magazines and can scan whatever I might need again, but scanning and editing takes hours, so it’s unfortunate that the work was lost. I am still figuring out what might be still around and what I will need to ready again. So this week I thought I would post illustrations from King’s Man, mostly because I haven’t featured the rad illustrations these magazines offer yet. There’s not too many in the mag but I love the 60’s art. I’d like to feature more of the art from the mags, I hope it’s interesting to you; please comment if you like them and want more. Enjoy!
This pictorial can be found in King’s Man #9 1960. “Sharon Lee is twenty three and every inch a woman” The article states her measurements, tells readers to take their word for it and explains that they’ll measure her for you, its a strange write up. They go on to describe her as an object and that “the boudoir is the obvious place for her” Already this magazine seems more sexist than any I have read up to now. Usually they’re light hearted jabs about wanting to bang some cutie, but this very short write up rubs me the wrong way. But a literary critic I am not. I am more of a pictures critic and these are very artistic, esp for a girlie mag. Sharon is adorable with her blonde waves and cute pout. This pictorial features my fave pic from this magazine, I will put it first, its almost angelic, she’s simply beautiful, I’m sure you’ll agree. Enjoy!
New magazine day! I just scanned/edited King’s Man #9 from 1960 and the pictures are wonderful 60’s smut. I’m only going to post three pics tonight, as the cover girl/pin up doesn’t have her own write up and I can’t find her name anywhere. I hope I will be able to find her name and update this post in the future. So tonight is just a quickie. I haven’t joined a centerfold in a while, its a new skill for me. I like to think it came out ok. Hope you’re looking forward to the rest of the mag! Enjoy!
