After the last Exotique magazine in 1959, Lenny Burtman launched Masque magazine, which lasted about four issues. The first of the Masque issues appears in 1960, and was like Exotique in every way:
• 64 black and white interior pages • color cover by Gene Bilbrew • two short stories — one silk, one cross-dressing — by Evelyn Adams • Bilbrew and Stanton illustrations • photos of models in corsets, stockings, long leather gloves, high-heeled shoes, and boots. • an article about bizarre indoor furnishings
Masque Volume 1
A beauty in every respect, Masque 1 offers first-class photography, sultry models, a few illustrations I've never seen before, and conscientious manufacture. The photography is set in Mr. Burtman's home, using his bar as a background.
If you like Exotique, you will like Masque 1. The ebook presentation is probably the best way to enjoy it.
