Tijuana Bibles

Marie, the French Maid

What should do someone that would like to enjoy of some very very naughty literature, also know as pornography, during the 1920’s or 1930’s in the U.S.? One of the options was the Tijuana bibles, also known as eight-pagers. They were:

pornographic comic books produced in the United States from the 1920s to the early 1960s. Their popularity peaked during the Great Depression era. The typical “bible” is 4 by 6 inches, with black printing on cheap white paper, and eight pages long. In most cases the artists, writers and publishers of these tracts are unknown. The art is usually crude and sometimes included racial caricatures. Their subject is explicit sexual escapades usually featuring well known cartoon characters, political figures or movie stars (used without permission).

I’ve ask to myself how popular they would be nowadays, since there are some beautiful erotic comics available, as Milo Manara and his gorgeous drawings of women, tons of pornographic and erotic magazines, books, films and all kind of related material. The Tijuana Bibles has an expressive collection of those Tijuana Bibles to all of those who want to compare and take their own conclusions, or just to satisfy the curiosity. But remember that is definitely NSFW and it may be offensive for some of you. (via coisas do arco da velha)
