Cinema and pin-up magazines...
We have a small selection of rare magazines for sale here at Arcane Towers.
Several years ago, there was a big "Burlesque" and "Pin-up" scene - this has now dwindled and is not seen as cool anymore, although the absolute Burlesque Queen, the fabulous Dita Von Teese, is still very much active (and we have two of her books in our stock, Your Beauty Mark as well as Burlesque and The Art of the Tease)
New Burlesque was inspired by the early years Pin-ups... And we have in stock some rare US original Pin-up magazines!
Real Screen Fun, November 1935...
Hollywood Girls and Gags: Movie Humor, March 1939, another rare item...
Much more stylish and definitely not going with the more "naughty" Pin-up style of photographs is another super-rare US magazine (British edition!), Motion Picture/Movie Classic from June 1937.
What I really love about vintage magazine is the frankness of their ads. To us, they often appear to be breathtakingly rude! At least, they do encourage their prospective customers to take responsibility for their own success!
And finally, we have a beautiful copy of The New Movie Album, another item from the US, from April 1931. Another classy read!
