Vintage Men's Mags #12: Girlie Magazines A to Z

For guys that we consider paragons of virtue and morality, the Greatest Generation sure did read a lot skin mags! For that matter, so did the generations before and after - it's as American as apple pie (er, maybe that's a bad cliché to use - Jason Biggs comes to mind).  But you get what I'm saying.  I would be remiss in my duties as the caretaker of Retrospace and not reserve a special place for girlie magazines.

Don't worry, there shall be no nudity on Retrospace.  Nipples, butt cracks and pubes are the devil's works and shall never taint the face of this blog (er, um. maybe "taint" was a bad choice of words too; it makes me think of.....  never mind). In fact, these old rags are tame compared to what you'll find in a Cosmo, GQ or even People magazine these days. But if I happen to let a naughty bit through, I'm counting on you to inform me of the offending N, BC and P (see above) so that it can be quickly deleted never to tempt a man again and lead him into eternal damnation.

The covers below are just girlie mags that start with "A".  If you'd like me to complete the alphabet in further posts, just say the word and it shall be done. Also, don't forget to click the images to view them full sized.

    I don't see a link to a zip file of this retro goodness anywhere.....

  2. DO continue the titles filling up the alphabet. I'd like to see them.
