Three issues (complete). Very rare copies of the iconic beefcake magazine. Interestingly by 1960 'Body Beautiful' had abandoned any pretence of fitness and muscle-building instruction and illustration, instead, with its photographs of barely clothed and naked men in careful, artful poses, it was clearly a magazine for the gay man. The covers of these copies have some wear about the edges and corners, some scuffing and general handling and storage marks. Nonetheless, they are anything but coy. March: front cover model: Keith Fisk; back cover: Kip Behar; inside back: Dave Bell. Inside other models include: Bob Vezina, Paul Johnson, Jacques Loyau, Laszlo Gyori, Warren Blackstone, David Worth, Barney Sherman, Roger Keith, Henry Bunkers and many others! Photographers: Mark One, Ajax, Vulcan, Pin, Graham, Studio 10, Bruce, Titan among others. The contents have mild evidence use about the corners, but otherwise the pages are healthy, confident. May: Front cover: Mel Fortune; back cover: Joey Krnjaich; inside front: Billy Hill; inside back: Firooz Changizi. Other models: Mark Tyler, Ron Sueflohn, Joe Warmuth, Henry Downes, Vince Perri, Rich Potoczek, Glenn Johnson, Dennis van Zuydam, Bob Rath, Ray Harper, Mel Fortune, Peter Hearne, Alwyn Murtough, stills from AMG movies and much more!
