Fond Memories

Fond Memories began in 1991 as a privately printed newletter for Bettie Page's most dedicated fans and collectors. All early issues (those prior to letter "L") had press runs of only a few hundred copies and were individually notarized for authenticity. All issue are at least 16 pages in length and contain reprints of classic Bettie Page Magazine covers and pictorials, letters from fans and collectors, original art and a wealth of information about Bettie as well as other pin-up / glamour art and models.

Issue "L" was the first to be printed for mass distribution. All issues were lettered instead of numbered. Each issue featured appearences by Bettie in magazines who's title began with the same letter as the issue letter. However, when the end of the alphabet was reached, there were 27 issues (26 alphabet letters plus the Summer '92 issue), and a switch was made to numbered vs. lettered issues. Only one issue was published under that format and it was issue # 28. All issues through "P" are full-size 8.5 X 11, whereas issues from "Q" through #28 and EB #3 are 5.5 X 8 digest size.



I have original first printings of all issues from letter "L" onward. All are new and unread at the original issue price of 5.00 each (except for letter "P" and Elegantly Bound v2) plus postage.



When Fond Memories was created in 1991, Bettie Page had not been heard from in 30 years. Her collectors were a much smaller group, and no one could envision the current "Rage For Page". As noted, the print runs of the first issue did not exceed a few hundred copies and all of those were destined for the loyal and dedicated group of collectors who were the impetus for the entire idea.



Now that the print run of Fond Memories is in the thousands, there is a large group of fans and collectors who never had an opportunity to obtain the early issues. For those who wish to obtain copies of these back issue. I am pleased to be the exclusive source for all early issue of Fond Memories: 13 different issue comprised of letters "A" through "K", the special Summer 1992 (published between letters "F" and"G"), and the Bondage issue (published between "I" and "J"). All 13 of these early issues are available for immediate shipment.



Press-ready art for first printing of early editions was painstakingly created from original photos, magazines and artwork, much of which was borrowed from a number of other collectors. Although it is technically impossible to produce reprints that are identicle to the originals, these reprints have all the original content and the only real difference is cosmetic. The unique touch of notarizing each copy is - unfortunately - not feasible with reprints. While these reprints could not be confused with the first printings, they do afford everyone who is a fan of Bettie's an opportunity to acquire the whole set of newsletters and know the complete story.
