Two original encased 120mm transparencies feature Angela Adams taken by Bob Guccione in 1972. Provenance: The Estate of Bob Guccione, NJ, 2012.Subject:
At twenty-two would-be novelist Angela Adams has devoted nine years to her literary muse without much tangible result-but we'd be much surprised if she hasn't motivated quite a few shelves of lyrical tribute herself. A resident of London, Angela out-numbers other inspirer's by a good 36-24-37, and the young literati of Chelsea crave her society as much for her rakish lines as for her wicked tongue. Employed by a leading English publisher, Angela looks upon sexual intercourse as an exercise in collaboration: "If a man's feeling very sexy," she says, "it makes me feel sexy too. And if he's very violent when he's making love-if he bites and scratches-than that's how I behave as well." Never without the hottest item between covers, even Angela admits that "bed is good for two things, but reading isn't one of them."Photographer:
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:
