Paperback 63: Sophisticated Sinner / Tony Trelos (Brandon House 918)

Paperback 63: Brandon House 918 (PBO, 1965)

Title: Sophisticated Sinner
Author: Tony Trelos
Cover artist: sadly, uncredited

Best things about this cover:

  • Another trashy Tony Trelos masterpiece (click on his name in the "tags" to see the other)
  • Is it wrong that the things that excite me most about this cover are 1. the lamp shade, and 2. her (discarded) dress?
  • Another thing that excites me: Unread / Fine Condition!
  • "She looked like a lady ... but her lovers knew better!" - was the cover copy writer here aware that the opposite of "lady" is not just "slut" but also "dude?" "Her" torso is rather mannish (boobs aside).

Best things about this back cover:

  • Boobs!
  • Smoke!
  • Those horizontal lines! If you stare at the actual book too long, you get a dizzy headache.
  • "Narda," ha ha.

Yeah, what crescenet said.

Also, this one could pass for a magazine cover. I think I would look forward to my monthly issue of "Sophisticated Sinner."

I see one boob in the middle of her chest, and one almost tucked under her left arm. I've seen boobs. They don't work like that.

My favorite part of that front cover is the reinforced toes on her stockings. Sex-AY.

The cover artist could be the underrated and great Fred Fixler.
