Peter Driben is known more for coy pin-ups than he is for bondaged damsels in distress. His paintings for publications such as "Titter," "Beauty Parade," "Whisper," and "Flirt" are legendary in the pin-up world. I'll present many of the coy pieces from those mags but also wanted to showcase Driben doing harder, pulpier stuff. He did a few paperback covers in that vein and a few mags like this one. Enjoy!
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.
