Published by "Frédérique Productions" in Cagnes-sur-Mer, 1988, (28.5 x 21 cm), 80 pages, under a cover with flaps.
Album composed entirely of colour photographs, most of them pornographic, very explicit, very few texts.
Luxurious confidential publication at the author's expense, printed on a lovely glossy paper. A very fresh copy, like new. Not very common first and only edition.
While the first signs of latex clothing in the media date back to the 1960s, particularly with the fairly regular use of rubber clothing (and more specifically "Mackintosh" raincoats) in the television series "The Avengers", the first magazine on the topic, Atomage1, created by John Sutcliffe, was launched in 1972. Other publications, still considered to be part of the underground culture, were also published: Rubberist3, Dressing for Pleasure.
But it was in 1983 that Tim Woodward launched a nightclub in London for latex fetishists: Skin Two, and, in view of its success, launched the magazine of the same name of which 66 issues would be published between 1983 and 2014.
In the same vein as Skin Two, the magazine "O" appeared in Germany, then “Marquis” and “Heavy Rubber”, and "La Scène" in France, of which only two issues were published in 1993 and 1994.
It can be assumed that all these publications, as well as the increasing use of latex in the media, particularly in entertainment, cinema and show business, have contributed to the fact that fetishism has now acquired a more "acceptable" status than in its early days.
