Here's a couple of good ole stripper books for you. Vintage paperbacks ranging from the early 1950's into the mid-1960's. Back in the day when stripping was a tease, and burlesque was the name of the game. Now in an era in which Dita Von Teese would be considered sexy as hell, yet quaint, I present you with some similar cheesecake. Burlesques costumes are really cool-- sexy, feminine, form-fitting, and the women are similarly attractive. However, I'm going to say it....I saw a burlesque show once and was a bit bored...okay, waiting to be flamed for that one. Artist on "Sin Strippers" is Eric Stanton-- unsure about the rest.

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.
