[some small tears and chips at edges of covers, but generally a decent copy, covers attached, no loose pages, internally very clean]. (B&W photographs) A curious mix of short articles of vaguely artsy interest, liberally interlaced with photos of naked women in vaguely artsy poses. There are profiles of movie stars (Reginald Denny, Colleen Moore), of course, and short pieces with titles like "The Bathing Suit Idea" and "In the Field of Highway Construction" (I don't quite get the artsy angle on that one, either). A particularly interesting article is "Cartoonists Organize; Professionals and Amateurs Unite in A.A.C.C." -- which is illustrated (facing page) by a photo of "Jewell LaKota ("Miss Cartoons") in a Winsome Pose" (topless, natch). The various models, showgirls, actresses, etc., who grace these pages are generally attractive (albeit in that sometimes chunky Twenties way) and generally about 1/3 undraped; my favorite double-page spread has Mlle. Bennett of the Keith-Albee Vaudeville Circuit opposite a reproduction of a painting of Pope Leo XIII. It's all Art, baby!
