FOND MEMORIES

NEWSLETTER TRIBUTE TO BETTIE PAGE, QUEEN OF THE PIN-UPS

FOND MEMORIES began in 1991 as a privately printed newsletter for Bettie Page's most dedicated fans and collectors. All early* issues (*prior to letter "L") had press runs of only a few hundred copies and were individually notarized for authenticity. All issues were at least 16 pages in length and contained reprints of classic Bettie Page magazine covers and pictorials, letters from fans and collectors, original art and a wealth of information about Bettie as well as other pin-up / glamour art and models.

From the beginning, all issues were lettered instead of numbered, with Issue "L" as the first to be printed for mass distribution. Each issue featured appearances by Bettie Page in magazines whose title began with the same letter as the issue letter; however, when the end of the alphabet was reached, there were 27 issues (26 alphabet letters plus the Summer '92 issue), and a switch was made to numbered vs. lettered issues. Only one issue was published under this format, and th was #28. All issues through "P" are full-size 8.5 x 11, issues from "Q" to the present are 5.5 x 8 digest size.

Now that the print run of FOND MEMORIES is in the thousands, there is a large group of fans and collectors who never had an opportunity to obtain the early issues. For those of you who wish to obtain copies of these back issues, I am pleased to be the exclusive source for all early issues of FOND MEMORIES: issues A through K, the special Summer 1992 issue and the first Bondage issue. All 13 of these early issues are now available for immediate shipment at the original price of $5.00 per issue (plus postage).

Press-ready art for first printings of early editions was painstakingly created from original photos, magazines and artwork, much of which was borrowed from collectors. Although it is technically impossible to produce reprints that are identical to the originals, these reprints have all the original content and the only real difference is cosmetic. The unique touch of notarizing each copy is -unfortunately- not feasible with reprints. While these reprints could not be confused with first printings, they do afford all Bettie Page fans an opportunity to acquire the whole set of newsletters and know the complete story.
