Bad Mags

Volume 1



by Tom Brinkmann


Headpress, London, UK. Oversized trade paperback. 311 pages. 2008. B&W illustrations throughout, with four pages of color illustrations in the middle of the book. The book is broken up into four main categories: Adult "slick" publications about counterculture and X-rated movies, "sexploitation" film magazines, "outlaw" biker magazines, and the last chapter is on the movies and adult magazines of Ed Wood, Jr. I am told that Volume 2 is in the works.
