Vixens of Vinyl: The Art and Allure of Vintage Album Covers is a dazzling tour of over two hundred beguiling album covers. Originally conceived as an easy way to sell albums to a predominantly male audiophile audience, this simple ruse soon took on an art of its own and much fine work was done. Author David Boykin has been collecting and researching the history of vixens of vinyl for over twenty years, and here, for the first time, presents his collection and narrative. Sure, vinyl is hot again--but the covers are hotter.

Irving Klaw was the legendary New York-based mail order merchant who from 1949 onwards produced thousands of films, photographic sets and printed booklets based on themes of fetishism, bondage, and sado-masochism. Although Klaw's most enduring artistic legacy arguably lies in his pioneering publishing work in the field of bondage illustration, he will always be best-known for his discovery and promotion of the iconic bondage model who went on to be famous throughout the cool world -- Betty Page. Through thousands of BDSM-themed photographs, as well as numerous short films, Page would become not only the superstar of the Klaw catalogue but, retrospectively, the most iconic fetish model of all time. THE WILD WORLD OF BETTY PAGE gathers together 80 classic photographs of Page, never before published in a single volume, which cover almost every aspect of her modelling work with Klaw. From sexy pin-ups in lingerie and fetish-wear to more intense scenes of sado-masochism, bondage, spanking and cat-fights, this anthology presents the essential Betty Page. The photographs selected also feature many of Klaw's other regular bondage models.
More than 200 pictures of lesbian male fantasies. 18 different photographic series show what "man" imagines: bluntly, varied, and with pretty young girls. Or, put another way: an appealing fast-changing photographic series, each featuring two girls. Double is indeed twice as good.
