This is one of the finest vintage magazines in our collection. Dating from 1939, not only is it beautifully painted with bright, popping colors, it also features a striking illustration of a woman who looks like the twin sister of the Bride of Frankenstein. She's so "alive", she looks like she's ready to leap off the cover and stare you down with her penetrating eyes. One word- delicious.
FringePop is a showcase for uncommon and esoteric cultural artifacts. The focus is on unusual items from both popular and fringe culture, with an emphasis on subversive pieces. The items shown are from the author's personal collection, unless otherwise noted.
I am a pop culture buff and collector, who focuses on the odd, subversive, and fringe elements of Western culture. In 2005, I edited a book for Feral House called "Sin-A-Rama: Sleaze Sex Paperbacks of the Sixties." The vintage oddities in my collection include victoriana, sideshow, medical, and kitsch. I am also an amateur sewer, making clothing from vintage mod patterns.
