Yay, karen brissette got me this, um, Valentine! I'm not sure exactly what it means or whether it is an intimation of my hobbies, but I am prepared to enjoy the hell out of it, no matter what. Thank you, brissy, for this wonderful (also: strange, in a good way) gift. I hope you didn't pay anything nearing the cover price of this book because wow.

The last few pages of the book contain the cover pictures from all 32 issues of the magazine th ...more

This is a collection of photos and drawings from ATOM AGE, which was apparently in its THE lifestyle magazine for people really into wearing leather bodysuits and boots and rubber masks. There's something amazingly surreal and inspirational about the combination of fetish clothes and totally banal interior decorating. I love the photos of people in sky high leather stiletto boots with matching gimp masks posing in their living room with their plaid couch in the background. A fascinating and stra ...more
