(NOW AVAILABLE as an EBOOK for IPAD $5.99!) 160 colorful pages of the most absurd and beautiful (often at the same time) vintage graphics and advertisements for Mail Order Smut from the Glorious age of Obscenity!

Using the archive of Original mail-order forms from the 1950s and 1960s collected by Victor Minx SMUT BY MAIL: VINTAGE GRAPHICS FROM THE GOLDEN DAYS OF OBSCENITY illustrates some 150 examples of art used to promote and sell soft-core porn.
Today laughable and virtually innocent, at the time the producers of the material were hounded by postal authorities and subjected to numerous censorship cases, which the essay by Jim Linderman discusses. Colorful, vibrant and downright odd, it is another example of formerly lost and forgotten art being brought to attention by Dull Tool Dim Bulb Books. Striking primitive and naive graphics which pre-date the punk esthetic by 20 years. 20 pages of the 2011 book are available for preview HERE. Certainly one of the most unusual and interesting vernacular art books of the year.
