Review Text

  • By Clifford on 14 October 2010

    'Bizarre' was a magazine which started in the early 1950s, catering to a broad spectrum of fetish tastes in bondage, corsets, high heels, tightly fitting boots, nylon stockings, exotic clothing, rubberwear, leatherwear, male cross-dressing, pony girls, male slaves, and corporal punishment. It relied heavily on readers' contributions, photographs and letters, which are always of questionable veracity in the erotic sphere, but it seems to have attracted a broadly based subscriber base, allowing it to continue to 26 detail-packed volumes. There are a few regular contributors of stories in the two thick volumes of this edition. Taschen have done a magnificent job in reproducing a complete set of the host of issues, although it is clear that the quality of the original material has limited the contrast and clarity of the very large number of illustrations - line drawings and photographs. This certainly detracts from the visual appearance of the two volumes, although simply making this treasure trove of relatively early fetish material constitutes a major achievement that has been only marginally diminished. Enthusiasts of most erotic preferences will certainly be able to spend hours digging through the wealth of detail that is presented here. The nature of the subject matter is such that the book retains its validity over fifty years later, but nevertheless it represents a testimony to the undercurrent of permissiveness that existed in the USA even in that era.
