I love this lurid scare the parents sorta book, that was really written for pervs! School Girl Scandals!! Teen-Age Drug Addicts!! Yay! It’s from 1952 & opens with a quote from Byron:
Without, or with offense to friends or foes, I sketch you the world exactly as it goes.
Of course there are 2 other books advertised on the back…Strange Loves by La Forest Potter M.D. & Sex Life In American Prisons by Joseph Fulling Fishman…this is the kind of stuff Ed Wood made a living at writing…
That opening quote kills me. Ed Wood definitely made his living writing these kind of things and it sounds like he could’ve mentored the writer of that quote.
I love the colors on the book cover, especially how the red pops, and that cigarette dangling out of her mouth with only the barest tip trapped in her lips is really good too.
The 1950s was such a great decade for this kind of stuff.
i love this…what’s that going on in the background in the oversized doorway?
must be the gateway to DISASTER!
