Gene Bilbrew Draws a Bettie Page Wig 1963
When did Leonard Burtman's more mundane cheesecake magazines (which I believe began far earlier than most published accounts, starting with a slew of standard "girly" digests with fairly bland, routine black and white photographs of burlesque dancers, camera club girls and buxom bosomy beauties) start to appeal to MEN dressing as cheescake? Certainly by 1963, when High Heels magazine published this drawing by Gene Bilbrew of a Bettie Page wig, some shapely gams and a curious corset? There is no indication this was a Halloween issue.
Burtman had been in business some ten years when this issue was published.
