[Sue Snow]


Artist's Model, Prize Model, Ready to Retire, The Temptress (1 original calendar, 3 salesman samples featuring Sue Snow)


N.p.: Colortone, 1950s. Three original salesman sample calendar toppers and one pocket-sized single card calendar for 1956-57, all featuring model & sometimes nudist Sue Snow. The salesman samples, full-color, white borders, blank versos: 8 x 10.75 inches (kneeling nude on red velvet and white lace. Breasts exposed, muscle tone and contours shadowy, slightly demure, ruby red lips, white ribbon in blonde hair tied up), and 2 are 12 x 16 inches (similar kneeling, breasts exposed, chin up, hands behind head tying blonde curly locks, rainbow pillows surround her against blue backdrop; and one posed more classically, falling sheer nightgown, breasts exposed, Sue looking up and away, lavish earrings, buttoned chaise and red velvet curtain); the pocket calendar is 2.25 x 3.75 inches, color recto image is same as the larger topper, w/ yearly mini calendars (1956-57) printed on the verso. Snow appeared in several 1950s nudist publications, was photographed by Andre de Dienes, appeared in nude "loop" adult films, her lithe, buxom natural figure, cherubic face, blonde locks aptly represent nudist-pinup crossover traits of the era. Generally unsung but heralded in certain circles, a brief career that faded into obscurity sometime in the 1960s. Samples like this were advertisement fodder for salesmen and mobster cronies, varying in size but most often used as toppers (decorative backings) for calendars, the target audience being men or any auto mechanic or exactly the kind of person dealing with those cronies. Very Good (pocket calendar, large toppers) to Near Fine (smaller topper). For mature, consenting audiences. [Book ID 127029]
