Synopses & Reviews
The definitive annotated and illustrated history of girlie periodicals (1958-1967) Volume IV concentrates on the emergence of California's specialty magazine industry and how it spawned the state's multi-billion dollar sex industry of today, but also includes fetish master Irving Klaw, the specialty magazines of England, and concludes with Sweden and Denmark's emergence as the new powers in European publishing. Together with Volume III, Volume IV gives a complete picture of this fascinating decade of rapid social change, but also stands on its own, covering a distinctly different, more risqu? side of 1960s men's magazine publishing. Volume IV contains over 400 full color pages of magazine covers and interiors with well-researched text profiling important publishers and artists, individual magazines, and specialty magazine categories. This hardcover volume is an instant collectable and is vital to completion of Dian Hanson?s: The History of Men's Magazines six-volume set.
