Beefcake: The Muscle Magazines of America 1950-1970
Holly: I know what you’re thinking. And you’d be right: this is a book about male standards of beauty. The only thing that makes this an ALB is if it is in a library whose audience has different ideals than this book represents. It’s actually an interesting look at how the idea of the “beefcake” came to be throughout the history of men’s magazines.
Mary: Not to mention easy on the eyes. Love this post!
