Physique Pictorial Volume 40, June 1987
21cm x 13cm. 32 pages, black and white illustrations. Illustrated saddle-stapled self-wrappers.
Single 1980s, and the penultimate issue in the original series of the most popular of beefcake magazines, Physique Pictorial, produced by Bob Mizer’s AMG (a relaunch of the series published from 2017 by the Bob Mizer Foundation). Early issues feature scantily clad athletic men in fitness poses together with homoerotic artwork by Tom of Finland, Harry Bush, George Quaintance, and others. If you can stayed focused the text provides insight into gay culture and rights at the time, as well as details on the models and artwork. Into the late 1960s and 1970s as the laws around censorship change, the beefcake physique magazine became more naked and blatantly homoerotic.
