Vintage Men's Mags #27: Girly Mag Covers


In case you haven't noticed, I'm big into covers. Whether it be magazine, record or book, I'm all about the cover.  Perhaps it stems from my background as an arteest (I was an art major till I wrongly or rightly changed majors to molecular biology). I can appreciate a good composition - even the title font for the mag above gets me all excited.

Or perhaps my cover appreciation simply comes from my severe ADD; my wife can attest to the fact that I've literally started thousands of books and finished none.  And let's face it, the cover is often the best thing about these old magazines.  Those pulp rags tend to get redundant, but the lurid covers never fail to excite.

Plus, I'm a sucker for some cheesecake.  Call me a prude, but a little cheesecake goes a long way with me. I don't have much interest in the excessively graphic porn magazine covers.  The Fine Art of Cheesecake is lost in the porn magazines and there's no sensationalist headlines to enjoy (see "Sweet Science of Spanking" above).

Anyway, I've got about a thousand old girly magazine cover scans I'm about to upload to my Flickr account.  But before we explore the next batch, I thought I'd put up one more post highlighting the old scans.  Some of these will be repeats, but I'll think you'll agree these deserve a second look.  Enjoy.



















































THE END.... (for now)

  1. That cover for Knave knocks me out! '80s fashions, black hose, a Ferrari, black panty hose, and those legs, in those hose...

  3. You're so right about cheesecake being a lost art. It's always more fun when something is left to the imagination.

    1. There's nothing dirtier than "The Mrs.". While hubby is gone all day working, the Mrs. is pancaking the paper boy, the milk man, the tv repair man. After lunch, it's time to pancake the plumber, the electrician and then have a get together with other neighborhood wives for a lingerie party/orgy.

  7. Back in the day "Gallery" was rather famous for it's "Girl Next Door" featuring photo's of wives and girlfriends of subscribers. I suspect "The Mrs." is in a similar vein.
