In the late '50s early '60s some of the most beautiful magazines in the adult genre were the medium format nudist publications from Europe. The main titles were Helios, Sonnen Freunde, Tidlosa and Gymnos. All were associated with major nudist organizations and together with the high quality printing and attractive design were vehicles for promoting the concepts of natural living. Most had distribution "bureaus" in the United States with texts translated to English and were amongst the first magazines showing full-frontal, unretouched nudity. Here in no particular order, from deep in my archives, a selection of images circa early 1960s.
