A bi-coloured view from the inside cover of Exciting No.21 (1968) of a model on the phone in just stockings and heels.
Another hairy view from the inside of Exciting No.21 (1968). This time a very nice black and white shot of a model in white heels and stockings on the bed showing off her bush!
From my growing collection of Exciting Magazines, the front, and rear cover of Exciting No.26 from 1969. This curly haired beauty isn’t shy in showing off her front and rear either, with two very open but classic continental poses on view. I’m not sure if her hair is natural or a wig, but the collar and cuffs certainly seem to match!
I now have 17 editions of Exciting in my growing collection, and they are certainly different from the magazine style of Harrison Marks and other UK photographers. Most shots are by Serge Jacques, and he certainly had a more open and differing style for his models to pose. Not everyone’s taste, but the style of the magazines and models has intrigued me, so thought I’d explore them a bit more! 😉
I love bi-coloured shots like this, especially this type of view! This comes from the pages of Cover Girl No.10 published in the late 1960s. I also adore this model, her chic look and the obvious view!
Some of you may know the titles ‘Cover Girl’ and ‘Exciting’. These were published by Nordisk Bladcentral, Copenhagen and distributed by Sangko-Norden and both magazines followed a very similar format. They both featured colour covers and back pages of a featured model, as well as a colour centrefold. The rest were black and white shots, but sometimes with a single coloured border or bi-coloured. All the models had one thing in common, they were nearly all natural and showing off their thick bushy curls. Most of the images of the girls were also mostly taken by Serge Jacques.
This model was a slight exception, as she had half-and-half down below, hair on top and smooth lower down. I also love how in this shot she is literally pulling her top up to flash her tits, with her knickers half down exposing her pussy!
Continuing from my collection of Cover Girl. The front and (rear cover for members) of Cover Girl No.24 from 1968. I love the concept of a front view on the main cover and a rearview on the back. I think I prefer the rearview of this edition, as you get a great view of the model’s great arse as she leans over a very retro style chair.
A nice uncensored view on the front cover too that no doubt caught the eye of potential European buyers.
Some will say that this type of magazine and post isn’t for them, which I totally get. For me, it’s about capturing and revisiting a magazine that’s disappearing fast in today’s world. These magazines are over 50 years old now, and printed versions are becoming rare. Take into account that these type of magazines are also disappearing because they are seen as not acceptable by certain groups in society today. It makes it even more important to capture and celebrate these magazines, the models in all their fabulous glory and the photographers that pushed the boundaries back in the 1960s. Sometimes it just seems like we are going backwards in our views and everything needs to be censored in case it offends one group or another!
I say just enjoy it for what it is in your mind and if not just move along 🙂
Dipping into another of the magazines in my collection. This time a rather nice bi-coloured view of Freida from Exciting No.16 printed in 1967 by Nordisk Bladcentral.
Freida is one of my favourite models from this type of magazine and was photographed by Serge Jacques. She appears in several editions, plus I have a set of original contact sheets of her and some prints. I identified her from this magazine as one page offers photo sets of different models and she is named on that page.
This is a fabulous pose of her kneeling on that chair in stockings and blouse with one leg up. It gives us a great view of her round arse and just a hint of pussy below 🙂
A different duo of girls from a scan of a recent set of magazines. This comes from Modern Girls No.5 and features two contrasting beauties by Serge Jacques. The ebony beauty is Nicole Isimat, who also appeared in Cover Girl No.12.
No idea who the blonde is, but both appear throughout the magazine in various poses and stages of undress, as you can imagine.
The front and rear cover of Exciting No.12. A nice front view on the front cover showing off this model’s nice little perky tits and thick hairy pussy, all highlighted by a black outfit and suspender belt. The rear cover has an equally enjoyable rearview too, this time an impressive round rear as she sits on a stool showing off her bum and more. This was the typical style of both Exciting and Cover Girl magazines throughout both their publishing runs.
The covers and rear all both glossy colour and the quality of the colours is exceptional as you can see 🙂
I finally got round to scanning one of the recent European magazines I acquired recently. This is the cover of Exciting No.30 published by Nordisk Bladcentral in the late 1960s, featuring a rather attractive blonde.
The magazine features 38 pages of different images, and the style of this magazine, and it’s sister magazine Cover Girl, was quite different. Each edition featured 3 or 4 models in various poses and various states of undress. Almost always they were wearing stockings and other underwear or stripping. Like almost all European girls of that era, all had a naturally untouched pussy.
The format of the magazine was 22 cm by 16.5 cm (8.5′ by 6′) in size and generally consisted of a glossy colour magazine cover. It featured the main model on front and back covers, with the front being a front view and the back being a rearview! The centre page featured a fold out tri-page colour shot of the cover model as well. The back of also featured a double page shot of a model in bi-colour. The rest of the magazine was a mixture of shots in black and white with colour borders or bi-colour shots.
The early editions featured the models in standard uncensored poses, but nothing too explicit. As you got into the late editions such as No.30 the poses of the models became more suggestive and explicit. With the large centre spread living up to its name and members get to see the beautiful blonde above spreading much more across three pages!
The reproduction quality of these magazines by Nordisk was fantastic, and the editions that I have are no exception. They are all mint condition with good paper quality and printing. The colours are fabulous and make the models stand out, and all needed little editing after scanning. Let’s not forget that all these images were also taken by renowned photographer Serge Jacques.
A stunning set of magazines and can’t wait to scan more 🙂
I thought I’d kick off the weekend with the first scan from Exciting No.8 (1967). This is a double page tricoloured spread of a stunning blonde that I just adore. The image has had the staples and page line carefully edited out for your pleasure. This was also on the reverse of the main centre page spread.
What a shot and pose of this blonde beauty, who appears throughout the magazine in various poses and stages of undress. It seems Serge Jacques had a thing for his models pulling up their tops to expose their tits below! But let’s not forget the rest of her either in those great stockings and shoes with thighs opened. A great spread for the weekend in more than one way. 😉
