Original nude, erotic, 120mm transparency of Helen Caunt taken in 1971 by Bob Guccione. Lot comes with October 1971 Penthouse Magazine, which features Helen Caunt on the cover and as Pet of the Month. The included transparency is from the photoshoot used for her pictorial.
Helen Caunt a twenty-year-old Sheffield lass, apart from her immediately assimilable assets of 36-24-35, is a talented terpsichorist and virtuoso vocalist. Pior to her Petship, she entertained U.S. troops in Spain and Germany, and was singing for the United States Embassy in London when her appreciable abilities were spotted by a club executive. As soon as her embassy contract expired, Miss Caunt hotfooted it to Mayfair, and began a promising career of great Pet-ential. Helen was Pet-of-the-Month of October back in 1971.
In 1965, Bob Guccione, a struggling artist with an entrepreneurial imagination, started a magazine called Penthouse. Due to his lack of resources, Guccione personally photographed most of the models for the magazine's early issues. He spent long hours, and sometimes, several days, to complete a photo shoot. Although he had no professional training, Guccione applied his knowledge of painting to his photography, establishing the diffused, soft focus look that would become one of the trademarks of the magazine's pictorials. These images offered more sexually explicit content than other gentleman’s magazines of the era, establishing Penthouse as a well known name amongst its competitors.Featured Video:
