    I think that would have been about 100 times better without the artist’s statement.

    This is just a Boing Boing-friendly version of Martha Rosler’s “Bringing the War Home” collages from the late 60s early 70s. (See here:

    I remember reading old issues of Argosy in the bathtub, not that there was anything pornographic about it.

    What  innovative collages :) I love the juxtaposition of the Better Homes and Gardens backdrops with the 1950′s sailors and temptresses.

    In the late 1970s I was at Laney college in Oakland and met Vaughn Bode’s (National Lampoon) brother who was studying art. He did a perfect knock-off of a Norman Rockwell Saturday Evening Post cover. It was the family at Thanksgiving. They were all nude.

    Love the mis-mosh of the images, it is so vintage and intriguing, you can’t look away…I love it !!

  9. Wow, I  would buy the “He man rescuing scantily clad babe” wallpaper in a minute.

    My Mum often opined that men were just like animals.
    She was obviously right as wild boars, monkeys, baboons, jungle cats and snakes seem to really like hot chicks too!
