Retro Lovely and my Father’s Day wish

RL5-2RL6-2
 
Back at the end of March I received a very heavy mysterious package in the mail.
The return address was Michael Bann and I kind of recognized it, but nothing concrete
So I tear open the package and what falls out?
10 fewking issues of retro lovely for me to sample and review
Michael sent me 3 regular issues, 3 taboo issues, 3 special editions and Star Maker No. 1 just make a nice even number
Damn I love my job!!!

Let's start out with the easy stuff. Each issue is printed on some seriously high quality paper, high gloss and made to last. Apparently each issue weighs close to a pound

This is something designed to be passed down to my kids and possibly down to their kids some day.

There is a couple of pages of advertisements in the front and in the back but other than that? Pages and pages of pinup girls.

We're talking high quality shots of beautiful women in stunning color.

I was consistently impressed with the quality and diversity of the shots in the magazine, just about every possible genre of pinup was covered

The standard issues rock, the Special Editions show off a single photographers mad mad skills, and I shouldn't even get started on the Taboo editions. It's the same quality shots but themed more mature (read yes you'll see boobs). but not sleeze by any stretch of the imagination. This is exactly the kind of magazine I used to steal from my dad's sock drawer.
