Early Upskirt The Art of the Flash

A staple of the vintage sleaze illustrator's repertoire, the upskirt flash. Most frequently caused by wind, but often as well by gymnastic gyrations on the part of the scheming businessman, boss or jackhammer worker. The examples all circa 1935-1945.See my published books

Censored Salesman Sample Pinup

Likely a sample page for a calendar, and if you look REALLY close you can see it was from a certainly long gone company known as "midnight dreams" who wanted to take off some skirts while skirting the law! Hilarious banner protects the innocent from boobage.

Gals Gams Garters THE BOOK Stockings Fetish Scrapbook

A legs and stockings fetish dream, a circa 1950 homemade scrapbook assembled by an anonymous aficionado of the female form in nylon found by a student in Virginia scrounging through dumpsters. A master of collage with scissors and tape, he meticulously created a giant homage to Gals Gams and Garters. Faithfully recreated here by owner Victor Minx, the pseudonym of a prominent photography collector and with an introduction by Jim Linderman, writer and proprietor of Dull Tool Dim Bulb among many other things. The SECOND volume
in the new limited edition DULL TOOL DIM BULB BOOKS imprint. Gals Gams Garters comes in a limited edition of 250 hardcover paper jacket book, there is also an unlimited (for now) paper edition available. FREE 15 PAGE PREVIEW

LOST Risque Illustration Girlie Drawings and the Postcard Chet Warner vintage sleaze

The work of one Chet Warner. Pseudonym or not, he's gone. At least I can't find anything about him. These images come from post cards produced prior to 1950 by the Asheville Post Card Company in North Carolina. I post them not to detract from the work of the four illustrators of note here on this site, but to raise an issue. Is there a directory of erotic illustrators? Not that many of the thousands upon thousands of amateur risque postcard illustrators necessarily deserve one...but some do, and Mr. Warner had a way with the pen. Asheville Postcard and Pennant company was founded in 1910. In the 1970's, 20 million cards in their stock were sold to an individual. Which explains why I was able to find a handful of mint condition and unmailed cards. A brief aside, and one which should not deter you from your paperbacks.
