The Contest Book 1974 Private Edition

We have been selling gay men’s culture, interest, homobilia, and ephemera for over 5 years now. Every once in a blue moon we stumble across the most amazing treasures and look what we found! Please take time to scroll all the way down to the bottom of this description and view all of the photos we carefully took time to scan and present to you.

The Contest Book 1974 Private Edition

This item was created before computer fonts, just look at the first page example or Reviewing Stand where the type face is in handwritten cursive. There are no page numbers, as the book states.

There are 27 double sided pages of drawings & photographs from artists sent to this contest book from all over the world. There are a total of 43 drawings interspersed with 21 real black & white photographs.

It never ceases to amaze us how so many gay men expressed their fantastical thoughts and ideas onto paper as far back as to when we were able to draw.

We are proud and happy to allow you to view these images for free online. Good luck to the man who wins this rare treasure and display with the best of his best.

Our hopes is that someday this Vintage book will find its way to a special museum or LGBT organization where visitors may appreciate the history and fine arts of gay culture.


Sincerely,
