"A Pandora's box of Freudian depravity"?  New Wave Hookers!?

What I wouldn't give for my own vintage porn poster.  Those were the days!

  1. Traci was only 15 or 16 when she made New Wave Hookers. Note the 1984 copyright on the poster; she was born in '68.


  2. Sounds like a graphic designer challenge if I ever heard one!

  3. It's been almost ten years since Snoeck published "X-Rated: Adult Movie Posters of the 60s and 70s", and I think it's still the best book about vintage porn posters. It sold out so I suppose it was a success, but here hasn't been a sequel ("movie posters of the 80s and 90s", or "more posters of the 60s and 70s"). And I don't think I've seen a good survey of vintage gay stuff (the one published by Bruno Gmunder -"from Andy Warhol to X-tube"- is well meaning and OK looking, but it's plagued with errors, like nobody would care about the text). Every other month I write to Dian Hanson (Taschen's editor of "Sexy Books") to whine about the lack of upcoming dirty books for the gays (don't we buy that stuff anymore? Weren't we the ones with all the available extra income?) and to beg for an all-male version of her "History of Men's Magazines", or a polished version of AA Bronson's "Queer Zines" exhibition catalogue, which was genius, or for a reprint of "Drummer" magazine, for which Rick Castro made a retrospective this year at Antebellum Gallery. I don't think any of that is going to happen.
    So yeah, I used your post to complain about something else. Sorry about that. (You seem to love art books, which is what I like best about your blog. If you ever have the chance, could you please name a few of the ones you like the most? I'm in a sort-of-drought here. Thank you.)
