JOY, Volume I, Number 1
Delilah Publishing Corp.,
New York, New York
a Bargain Bin digital replica
With aggressively modern graphics (i.e., lots of white space, balance without symmetry), JOY organizes pictures into sets by model, as in most men’s magazines. Cute and flirty posers include Arlene French, Rita Daley, Barbara King, Marlyn Mayer, Shirley Conway, Sally Adams, Laurie O'Shea, Maria Morelli, Leslie de Lee and Michelle Roberts.
Inside, we find Margurite Empy, California's top figure and pin-up model. It's her pleasant personality, we're told, that earns her the rate of $50 per hour when on the job.
The cover boasts about Hollywood's New “It” Girl, Terri Higgins. On six pages, this cheerful blond shows off well-turned ankles and an abundance of buoyant womanhood.
Some pictures show lovelies in stockings, sheer nighties, and nice mules. The cover model is not seen inside.
The ebook contains all the content of the 1962 publication, including two pages of cartoons and an incongruous filler piece about an Italian mountain climber.
This is a Bargain Bin ebook because its content is derived from internet images. After adjusting brightness and contrast of the professional photography, the quality is comparable to that of a scanned magazine. Some page layouts were revised. Some specks retouched.
These models charm with friendly appeal and feminine curves. In a time before surgery routinely enhanced women's bodies, the ladies of JOY allure us with natural plentitude.
