VINTAGE PAPERBACKS Good Girl Art
GGA Call Girls

Street Walker Thumbnail

Prostitution was another favorite topic of the 1950s, and another area where fantasy and reality were far apart. Most 'call girls' were shown as attractive and having a wonderful time. By the 1960s things got much more lurid (as did most books and covers). Prostitute seemed like a harsh name, so they were often called 'call girls', 'B-Girls' (Bar-girl), good-time girls and party girls. Cover art had to depend on aluring women in skimpy clothes, hard looking girls dangling cigarettes or half-dressed women on a bed with a 'john' in the doorway. Here are a few of those covers:

Sin Street Thumbnail This is one of the earliest paperbacks about prostitution, a reprint of Scarlet Patrol from 1937, which purports to be "The inside story of the vice racket as told by a Call Girl!". She was pleased to make $35 on her very first night out. This is also a well-loved classic cover although I'm not sure why.
No Last Names Thumbnail Here we have a healthy looking girl with money and in a good-time city. Looks pretty good. The cover is by Paul Rader, one of the most collectible of the Midwood cover artists.
Thank You, Call Again Thumbnail Things are looking a little harsher with a decidedly unhealthy looking woman in a dark room. This is beginning to look like no fun at all.
Call Me Bad Thumbnail I like this one because of the back cover blurb "Call me bad - but call me....". A book about call girls that could also be on the Bad Girls page. There is another image of it on the Guest Page.
Ticket To Passion Thumbnail At one time there were dance halls where men would pay to dance with pretty girls. It was assumed that these girls were available for more than dancing.
Call Boy ThumbnailCall Boy Thumbnail Here's a variation on the theme but the girls are still the draw.
Women In Crime Thumbnail Nice magazine cover in the spirit.
