Déshabille Witch, 1952
“Legendary French pin-up magazine Paris-Hollywood” featured a centrefold under the title “Le Sabbat de la pin-up Déshabillable” in issue no. 127 in 1952. Below is the magazine opened to the centrefold.
What may not be obvious in my photos is that the centrefold artwork is made up of a colour image on paper, and a tissue-paper overlay that has our sexy witch’s clothes—a body-stocking–printed onto it. Turn back the tissue and voilà: half-naked witch!
Turn back the other side of the tissue and voilà: the bottom half of the witch is naked!
Pull the staples out of your copy of Paris-Hollywood and you get one buck-naked witch.
And one piece of tissue-paper with a body-stocking on it.
Cool, eh? And again, in close up. Stocking on …
It is the sort of thing that could amuse you for hours. Well, some of us anyway.
If this doesn’t work for you, buy yourself a copy of Taschen’s Paris-Hollywood (2001), it is in their “Icons Series,” and has 192 pages-worth of beautiful pin-up images such as this one.
