Bye Bye Bye

*NSYNC
Boekhoff and Kallen
2003

Submitter: This book is ‘tearing up my heart’ knowing it’s still sitting on the shelf all these years. So who’s  going to weed this book? “It’s gonna be me.” I guess I could have gone with Bye Bye Bye old book…

Holly: This was published just as the group was breaking up. I think we can safely let it go. “This I Promise You.”

T-Shirting

T-Shirting: A Do-It-Yourself Guide to Getting it On Your Chest
Platt
1975

Submitter: I had high hopes from the cover this book might be a groovy book that, when put out on display might get someone to check it out. But alas, its one of those disappointing craft books with bad black and white images.

Holly: Fair warning before you scroll down: two of these images are potentially NSFW. One is a t-shirt model with “special skills” (image 6 below). This might have been a cool book in 1975, but I agree with Submitter: black and white images are just disappointing in a craft book. I want to see those chest handprints in living color (image 3 below…NSFW…).

Hippie Crafts cover

Hippie Crafts

Hippie Crafts: Creating a Hip New Look Using Groovy ’60s Crafts
O’Sullivan
2005

Submitter: This book has not circulated since being purchased back in 2005. From the looks of it, I can see why! Maybe Mary can delight us in some of her 60’s threads.

Holly: Mary is cool, but not this cool.

Mary: I am quite certain I sported a few similar items, but I am going to say no to the vests in the 5th picture. Some of these should have stayed put in the 1960s.

Glamor Photography censored cover

Glamor Shots – NSFW!

Successful Glamor Photography
Kelly
1983

Submitter: While helping someone look for photography books here at the public library, I came across this gem. It’s porn – let’s not kid ourselves. Almost every page has topless women on it. To my eye, this is one of those “Art” books that is really upscale porn. The circulation for this book was still good, so I updated the subject heading so that patrons will understand the true intent.

Holly: I’ll just bet it circulates well! Lol! Scroll down AT YOUR PRE-WARNED DISCRETION for the uncensored cover and other images from within.

Teen Motherhood

Motherhood for Teens

Teen Motherhood
Hammerslough
1995

Think of your average pregnancy and childbirth book and strip down to about 15 pages. This is the book you will get. Teen motherhood is an issue worthy of a book. I also know that teens are woefully unprepared (as are adults for that matter), for the reality of parenting and changes to their body. This book gently tries to avoid judgment and just hand out information. Nice objective, but it falls short.
