Welcome to Vintage Fetish Magazines

An archive of British men’s magazines from the 1950s to the late 1970s

Vintage Fetish provides information and entertainment for collectors established and new. 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 offer a range of titles that includes Spick, Span, Beautiful Britons, Funfare, Bamboo, Silky, Mustang, Skirt, Search, Relate, Accord − and many more. There are detailed history pages, photo galleries, hundreds of individual model profile pages, data files, and book previews for you to enjoy.

There are always second hand-books and eBooks (digital copies) that have been professionally scanned from the originals for you to buy and then download. Please do take the time to explore − and use the site search engine to help you find information on specific models and books you are interested in. And subscribe to the blog, which has model pictures and updates posted daily.

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.

This site is an archive and information resource of vintage men’s magazines from a time long past. It is not intended to be pornographic, but some of the content is of an adult nature, so if you are under 18 years old or easily offended, please don't go any further.
