Clara de Noche - Klaartje bij Nacht

Clara de Noche - Claire de Nuit in French, Klaartje bij Nacht in Dutch, Betty in German (what a lousy translation, does not remind the original, but I must admit, Clara does look a bit alike Betty Page!) - is a kind of Spanish "Tijuana bible". It was published at the end of the 1990-s.

Ancient Greek Erotic

Today a scan of a set of glass mats I once bought on Crete. It's not old, but the pictures on it are.

Afbeelding toevoegen
I bought the set together with a nice book about a related topic: "La Vie Amoureuse de Grecs Anciens" by Sofia A. Souli. Perhaps I once will make scans of illustrations from it. For now you may be pleased with a scan of the cover:

Blondie in "Lonely"

Today I will pay somme attention to my comics collection. I am not intending to scan all of the items, but some special ones I will. Starting with a Blondie parody. Wikipedia tells about Blondie:

Blondie is an American comic strip created by Murat Bernard "Chic" Young and syndicated by King Features Syndicate. It has been published in newspapers since September 8, 1930. The success of the comic strip led to a long-run Blondie film series (1938-1950) and a popular Blondie radio program (1939-1950).
But I am more interested in the "Tijuana bible"-version of Blondie.
Tijuana bibles (also known as bluesies, eight-pagers, gray-backs, Jiggs-and-Maggie books, jo-jo books, Tillie-and-Mac books, two-by-fours and fuck books) were pornographic comic books produced in the United States from the 1920s to the early 1960s. Their popularity peaked during the Great Depression era. The typical "bible" is 4 by 6 inches (approx. 10 x 15 cm), with black printing on cheap white paper, and eight pages long.

Between 1930 and 1950 Berna Pantz Presents Blondie in "Lonely" appeared:
