Topper 1965 and Laura Eden

New magazine day! Although I’m starting a new mag today, there’s one or two pictorials left for Rapture. I was thinking for variety sake I would introduce something new. I might get back to it, but if I don’t the pictures I haven’t blogged yet are available to view in my Imgur account, along with other pics. I will include the cover/back first then a pictorial, with cropped pics then the layout pictorial.

Bare Skin in Gotham Starring Laura Eden is a short write up about a movie Laura starred in called “Laura Eden’s Magic” and talks about the trend of making ‘nudie’ movies; I couldn’t find any info on the film. It’s kinda weird to me that they state “in spite of the fact that they now no longer generate the heat they once did- at least in print” mostly because ‘nudie’ movies were still kinda new in 1965, perhaps because there wasn’t mainstream penetration at the time? They go on to say “There isn’t much else to say…but that it’s worth looking at. After all, what are girls for?” which I think is the funniest part of the article. The actual write up is pretty short, feel free to read and comment about your take on it. Laura is adorbs, and I’m sure you’ll like her pics as much as I do. Enjoy!

Lament for a Lonely Lass

Hi guys, Valentines weekend quickie! Here’s Maria Continas hanging out in her bedroom in her underpants with her guitar and a rose and stuff. This almost finishes up Rapture 1963, so new magazine coming soon! Hope you had a great weekend and enjoy!

Blonde with a Mint Twist

Wow, way too long guys! I actually picked up some new mags this weekend, but I have a few more pictorials to post from Rapture, so I better get going on that! This post is all about Sherri Scott, who is a model from Brooklyn and is described in the first sentence as ‘pert.’ She’s studying ‘dramatics’ and hopes to become an actress, but I guess for now she’s settling for modeling. Apparently she loves football, both New York teams, which is adorbs. I love her pictures, she’s got a great hair flip and is in a sexy hat and super long thigh highs, underpants and gloves. She has a super cute sixties style, I’m loving her makeup. I’d say my fave pic is the green tinted candy one, I know this pictorial is one everyone will like, she’s a great model. Enjoy!

Champ of the 3 Cushion Shot

Hey guys, I haven’t had too much time lately to write blog posts, but I do have lots of stuff scanned. So I was thinking I could do a few quickie posts, who has time to read anyway?! Here is Cathy Channing from Rapture 1963 messing up the felt on the pool table at The San Francisco Athletic Club. Enjoy!

It’s A Mad Mad Mad Mad Hat

Happy Happy New Year!

Alright guys lets jump right into Rapture 1963 with ‘It’s A Mad Mad Mad Mad Hat’! It’s an odd headline but Jennifer Edlund is adorable in her hat. She’s just lounging around in her tights, topless, no big deal, with a hat on top. The article talks about how she is a skillful hat and dress designer, although that’s not her profession; Jennifer is a PE teacher in Atlanta. Which is kind of interesting to note, because today a lady teacher could get fired for posing topless. I like the pictures, my fave would be the one where her tights are half down her butt and she is looking over her shoulder at the camera, it also has interesting coloring, I think they must have colored the negative to get that effect. I thought it was a cute article, but then I came across this line- “Like most women, she has a problem making up her mind, so she solves it by just taking both hats home” I don’t think its crazy to think you can show topless ladies with out being condescending, geez Rapture. Oh well, I’m still a fan. Enjoy!

New Magazine- Rapture from 1963

New magazine day! I am really excited about this new mag Rapture from 1963. It’s a Parliament Publication- those are my absolute fave! So this post is the cover/back and a few other pics that I can’t find any credits for; it’s kind of a random mix. I am also pretty sure that the cover girl isn’t in the mag, as well as the centerfold. Parliament has such a beautifully innocent trashy aesthetic and its just great. If you look in the archives Pagan from 1965 is also one of their publications. I know you’re gonna love this magazine as much as I do, the ladies are adorbs, along with the styling, art direction, sets, makeup- all of it! Enjoy!

Rub A Dub Dub

Sort lil teeny bonus post just for Thanksgiving! Rub A Dub Dub 1961! There’s no room for false modesty in the life of a girl who has learned how to relax and have fun. Don’t be narrow minded, let yourself go, and jump in the tub with Freddi Robbins. She’s cute and has a lager butt than most in this magazine; always something to admire and praise. I love her messy hair and relaxed style. Have a happy Thanksgiving and enjoy!

The Girl Friend of the Whirling Dervish

This article is strange. I suppose its supposed to be poetic or artistic? Here’s an excerpt: “Tiring of her exercises, the girl took off the sweater and played awhile with her dog, enjoying the feel of the poodle fur against her flesh. Then she put on her dancing girl skirt and practiced sultry routines, while the desert sun throbbed in accompaniment.” I’m just not sure how to describe this write up. Anyway, Maritza Antoinette is Spree’s choice for Harem Girl of 1961! Her pictures are great, she’s dancing and posing in the desert sun. Glistening sand…Burning sun…and Twirling Hips! She poses in a skirt, with a towel and in bikini bottoms, because I guess the desert is kinda like a beach? The pictorial isn’t super 60’s styled but the poses sure are and the black and white contrast makes the pictures glamourous. One more thing, half are kinda sepia tone and the other half are blueish/photo copy like, this is how they are in the magazine, I left it untouched, true to the original printing, even though it kinda bothers me. So, let’s get into the pictures, Enjoy!

Those Bedroom Blues

It’s early morning blues for beautiful Beverly Bailey! This is like a non-article, there’s not actual info about Beverly, rather a fantasy about how she likes to lie in her bed all day and night until she needed money so she became a model and now has to get up early. It’s kinda odd, but most girlie mag articles seem made up anyway. It feels like they had the pictorial spread and did a write up that might go along with it; like ‘how can we explain why this pictorial is Beverly lounging around her bed?’ The pictures themselves are beautiful and artistically done. Beverly is so soft and cute and classically beautiful. Beverly was definitely model material. Hope you like the second pictorial from Spree 1961! Enjoy!
