Meet the Author

Eric Godtland is a self-confessed compulsive collector.Working from his bases in the Haight-Ashbury and Potrero Hill districts of San Francisco, Eric obsesses over all things girlie, Hawaiian, musical and modernist. Originally from Butte, Montana and Coronado, California, Eric traces his interest in mid-century magazine design to the colorful pasts of both of these character rich towns, where the past over-stayed its welcome.

Dian Hanson is a twenty-five-year veteran of men's magazine publishing. She began her career at Puritan magazine in 1976 and went on to edit a variety of titles, including Partner, Oui, Hooker, Outlaw Biker, and Juggs magazines. In 1987 she took over the '60s title Leg Show and transformed it into the world's best-selling fetish publication. She is also the author of Taschen's Terryworld, Tom of Finland: The Comic Collection, and History of Men's Magazines six-volume set.
