The perfect word for a 1950's Parisian magazine, Exciting. One in a long line of small format 5.5"x7.5" publications created in the French capital circa 1950 to 1953. The genre was filled with numerous titles by a few different publishers, however it's possible they all sprang forth from the same well. I love these magazines as the editors and photographers focused on what I like best of the period: beautifully seductive Parisian models posed nude or in marvelous lingerie: corsets, black lace, garter belts, panties, stockings and high heels. All the photos from Exciting #2.
