This is a book that's over 670 pages in length, and is written in three languages, one column for each language on each written page. It's also incredibly crammed with cover and interior photographs.

Chapter 4 refers to the Spicy Pulps with lots of images of covers from pulps like Snappy through Spicy Detective.

The rest of the book covers girly magazines from various countries and various periods in time.

Definitely an interesting book.
