1954, paperback edition, 1959
Today in vintage sleaze we have Dormitory Women by R.V. Cassill. This Lesbian pulp fiction has all of the ingrediants: bad girls, murder, sexual assault, revenge, and for extra fun, an asylum. I am fascinated by the old pulp fiction covers. They just don’t do book covers like this anymore. These pulp fiction books are always fascinating. Just the stuff for cold winter reading.

Submitter: There I was, searching the shelves of my workplace (the library) when I came across this gem. Now, it’s not really bad per se but I work in a university library and can’t quite see how this is relevant outside of a public library – especially seeing as we don’t teach film studies! It is also quite out of date; the blurb on the back talks about what a great bloke Kev is (“Straight (?? – How is this important?), honest and as wholesome as apple pie”) but this was printed before he went through what I remember as being quite a messy divorce. And it is pre-‘Waterworld’. Check out the full-colour, smouldering chest shots
Holly: Kevin Costner was born in 1955. That puts him at 38 years old at the time of publication. It also puts him at 59 today. There’s a lot more to the story than this book will tell. It really is a strange choice for a university library! It’s just a little thing at 128 pages, although it is not cataloged as juvenile. Either way, it’s time to say goodbye to the Costner of the 90s. (Though DO check out the chesty shot below…)

Understanding Personality Through Faces
We had a housekeeping day at the library as part of our staff inservice. This gave us an opportunity to clean up, shelf read and do other chores around the library. Of course we found stuff. Take a look at this gem. Did you know you can tell all sorts of personality traits from a person’s face? I am quite sure this is all very “scientific”.
I am not sure I am going to read anyone’s face for deep insight, but certainly I will be thinking about noses in a whole new way. (12 year old boy humor alert).
