Spick, Span and Beautiful Britons were the longest running and most successful of the pin-up magazines to emerge in post-war Britain, running from 1956 to 1976. They either spawned, or were spawned from, a myriad of similar pocket-sized magazines, some of which lasted for only a few editions, other for a few years. Vintage Fetish is home to a representative sample of some of those magazines.
We offers a range of titles that includes Spick, Span, Beautiful Britons, Funfare, Bamboo, PEP, 66, Search, Relate, Accord − and more. There are detailed history pages, photo galleries, individual model profile pages, data files, and previews for you to enjoy.
There are second hand-books for sale, and a large selection of eBooks (digital copies) that have been professionally scanned from the originals for you to buy and download, with more being added all the time. Please do take the time to explore information on specific models and books you are interested in. Don’t forget to check out the blog, which has pictures and updates posted regularly.
This archive is a work in progress, with new titles and model page information being added frequently. If you think you have anything to offer (or correct!) on any of the titles covered, then please do get in contact.
