The Coming Shortage of Women

One more post from the pages of the March 1965 issue of Pageant magazine (see our last two posts for more), and this is a funny, MAD style illustrated article called "The Coming Shortage of Women" (oh no!) written by Sy Reit and highlighted by the usual top notch art stylings of the one and only Wally Wood. Hope everyone enjoyed this glimpse into the world of Pageant.

Pageant Pretties

More tasty tidbits from the March 1965 issue of Pageant, (see our last post HERE for more), and among the grim articles concerning botulism, suicide, impotence, and ex-cons, there are a handful of gorgeous glimpses into the wondrous worlds of actresses like Gina "Valley of the Gwangi" Golan, and Gina "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" Lollobrigida (yes, double the Gina action!) Plus, a cute article on Margaret "The Wicked Witch" Hamilton, and more! There's no shortage of women here at AEET, but in our next post we'll be looking at some petrifying possibilities if there actually was one, --and how art master Wally Wood would depict it! See ya in a few! :)

Pageant's Parade of Life

Wonderful key art highlights from the March 1965 issue of Pageant Vol. 20, No. 9. If you're unfamiliar with Pageant, it's sort of a trashier men's version of Reader's Digest, smaller sized and square bound, but full of sex related articles and eye-poppin' photo lay-outs of scantily clad actresses (coming in our next post!) The various bits below that look like Paul Coker art were printed very small so I've blown them up 600% --because that's what we like to do around here! How gorgeous is that Jackson W. Paine piece? If anyone recognizes any of the other artists, please let us know...

Star Lard

I'm not sure of the date on this Armour's Star Lard recipe booklet, (1940's maybe, from the design looks of things), but the recipes are fresh and very tasty sounding, and you certainly cannot beat the awesomeness of that little illustrated chef guiding you through the pages. Whether he's ringing a delicious doughnut, sawing away at a mince meat bar, throwing star shaped cookies at your head, or strugglin' with the menu destined pigs and chickens-- this guy means business! I especially love the image of him jammin' out with a giant fork under the peach cobbler recipe! Rock on, Teeny Chef!

Amy's Long Night

Some of these old Whitman Tell-A-Tale books from my childhood are so sugary sweet, you can almost get a tummy ache just reading them! As is the case with Amy's Long Night (1970) by Nancy Garber, and featuring some seriously cute illustrations by Lynn Wheeling. All lil Amy wants for her birthday is to stay up late, is that too much to ask??!! I can remember those days of forced exile to the bed, tucked away hours before the monsterama late show would even come on Channel 30. And the strange feeling of finally getting our wish, only to realize at sudden dawn that we somehow fell asleep without even knowing it, around the same time we usually went to bed anyway! The sights, the sounds-- the snacks! It may not have lasted ALL night, but it was all fun none the less. Your own adorable late night rite of passage begins now here at AEET, enjoy!
