A definitive look at another of America's forgotten popular forms, the men's magazine from its post-war beginnings, through to its finality as the girlie magazine.

It is its crazed mid period that really fascinates, where Nazi's drool over & torture scantily clad women, or deranged bikers stage gang battles. Throughout the whole book, there are high quality, beautifully detailed full-colour illustrations, plus numerous original paintings.

These fabulous images were the work of a highly talented group of artists, including Mort Kunstler, Norman Saunders & Norm Eastman. There are accompanying essays from Adam Parfrey, plus an indexed guide by Bill Devine. Essential reading for fans of Americana and popular culture, it comes highly recommended. The original version was a best seller, this expanded edition delivers the knockout punch. Top marks for low-brow culture fiends.
