This item is a rare and vintage PRESS ARTS publication titled UP-CLOSE, Number 2 featuring full-page male photo pictorials, as seen thru the close-up lens of a camera. This magazine was produced in 1969 using heavy stock paper. It is oversized at 8-1/2” x 11” and is still in UNREAD condition. This item is DEAD STOCK as the original distributor never sold it; it has been in storage for over 50 years. See photos for condition.
Michelangelo appreciated the body as a complete art form. Each nuance was carefully studied by the master. Each part was a creation of beauty unto itself. Who are we to argue with so worthy and esteemed a judge?
Rather we must concur that the human form, properly looked at, is indeed beautiful. The phallus, has of itself been a symbol of worship and veneration for centuries.
It is with these thoughts in mind; a collection of photo reference studies for the artist: an aid to the student of art or nature in his quest for beauty through the study of anatomy that we are presenting UP-CLOSE.
ALL MODELS IN THIS MAGAZINE ARE CERTIFIED BY THE PUBLISHERS TO BE OVER THE LEGAL AGE OF 18, AS REQUIRED BY FEDERAL LAW.
