A new image-based booklet, one of many short run, stand-alone publications that Public Collectors will publish in the years to come. Not many copies will be printed of each title so get 'em while you can.

While not particularly explicit (just a few pairs of male and female breasts here and there), the rough quality of the photos gives this an appropriately dirty feel, with a touch of the creepy as well. Here's the description from the back cover of the booklet:


"This booklet consists of scans of personal ads taken from issue number 38 of the swingers magazine Select, published in New Jersey in 1972. Issues of Select consist of thousands of ads for individuals or couples that swing and are seeking other swingers. Most of the ads in Select feature partially nude portraits that include the person’s face. AMBIGUOUS ADS focuses on personal ads where the individual in the ad has somehow obscured their face. These are, perhaps, the swingers that were not quite ready to go public with their lifestyle choice.

This booklet was compiled and designed by Marc Fischer. All of the ads were originally printed in black and white. Here they are enlarged by 250%. The ads were also accompanied by texts describing the kind of partner that each person (or couple) was looking for. Those texts have been omitted except for the location of the person depicted."

Laser printed on heavier than usual glossy white paper.
