Lot comes with January 1983 Penthouse Magazine, which features Carmen Pope on the cover and as Pet of the Month. The included slide is from the photoshoot used for her pictorial. Model:
Carmen Pope, the dusky beauty who debuted as March 1978 Pet of the Month, is an unbashed sensation seeker. Underwater swimming is her favorite primordial pleasure, coupling womblike security with the weightlessness of space. Next best thrill: drag racing her souped-up-V28 Camaro in the outskirts of L.A. Needless to say, even at full speed ahead our 38-22-36-inch water sprite stops more than her share of hearts. Now a budding actress, Carmen has appeared in films starring James Garner and Tony Curtis. The limelight was frightening at first, but now she takes to it like a duck to water, learning to go with the flow.
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.
Although Bob Guccione's formal training amounts to a one-month stint at the Art Students League, his entire life has revolved around the art world since the age of 5, when his aunt gave him a book of impressionist reproduction. As a young man living in Europe and North Africa, he furthered his artistic pursuits by painting and sketching for over 20 years. His sense of light, form, and movement can be attributed to the past 30 years he has spent behind the camera lens. Finally his lifelong acquisition of old-master, impressionist and post-impressionist works has greatly influenced his use of inert color. Although he is known primarily as a businessman, and owner of GMI and its 17 publications, he states that "my greatest passion has always been art." Featured Video:
