Feb. 1948 Issue of “Beauty Parade” with Peter Driben Pin-Up Artwork on the Cover.

Lot 403. Feb. 1948 Issue of “Beauty Parade” with Peter Driben Pin-Up Artwork on the Cover. Born in Boston in 1903, Driben produced a series of pen-and-ink drawings of Paris showgirls while attending the Sorbonne. In New York in 1936, he moved into advertising, creating three-dimensional die-cut displays for Philco radios and other companies and products. In 1941, his close friend Robert Harrison created “Beauty Parade” and subsequently launched seven similar magazines. Harrison contracted with Driben to produce covers for them. Through the 1940s, Driben painted hundreds of covers for these publications – often six or seven per month. Through these illustrations, he became one of America's most recognized and successful pin-up and glamour artists. This issue of “Beauty Parade” contains 64 pages printed in brown and white and filled mostly with photos (and limited copy) of burlesque dancers and models, some identified, some not. Among them are June March, Jane Tyler, Georgette Windsor and Janice Hansen. The magazine is vg-ex with a split along more than half of the spine; the covers remain attached. The front cover has a tiny tear at the top, and two short horizontal black lines at the top right. Driben’s illustration displays very nicely. Winning Bid $35.
