The magazine finally arrived after it’s long journey from Australia to me … I had mentioned in my previous blog entry that the cover was a new pic for Set 256, so did not know what to expect as to the rest of the contents. Well all I can say is that the magazine did not disappoint. Veronika was featured on 9 pages including the centerfold and featured virtually ALL NEW PICS for Sets 232, 255, 256 … only one photo had either previously been published or released on SUZE’s site.
Here’s a preview of the contents …
If you happen to see the magazine for sale anywhere … is certainly well worth picking up.
All photos were shot by Suze Randall back in 2002 on Veronika’s visit to her ranch north of Los Angeles.
Several of Veronika’s sets were only ever released in B&W (for artistic reasons I can only assume). Several years ago I remember seeing a colourized version of one of these B&W pics posted on the web which I had added to the comments section of Set 368.
A few months ago I managed to track down the source to The Vintage Erotica Forum, so decided to request the “colourization” of 3 additional B&W photos of Veronika which I have attached. I have to say that my dealings with the guy doing the work was rather unpleasant … he came across as very arrogant … in the end I am happy with the results below but I doubt we will ever get anymore out of him . Am hoping someone else is an expert in colourization and wants to take a crack at some other photos!!!
I have finally decided to split the original Set 138 into 2 separate sets. I never understood why these pictures were released as 1 set on Veronika’s original website since this was always 2 distinctly different photoshoots.
The updated Set 138 features the photos of Veronika wearing a single piece latex outfit and & Adele wearing a laced latex top and latex pants, while the new newly created Set 460 features those photos where Adele wears a latex chain outfit and Veronika wears the spiderweb panties.
See the samples below:
As part of the release, all pics have been rotated to their proper orientation and all photos have been placed into what I think was the original photoshoot sequence.
These sets were shot in Prague back on Jan. 15, 2001 by the late Michael Ancher.
WOW found this surprise on ebay yesterday …. a super rare Australian issue of “The Picture” magazine from Jan 2004. Have been on ebay for well over 10 years and have never seen this issue posted for sale before. Of course had to buy right away 😉 The description said that it had a 9 page layout + centrefold with 16 pictures. The cover is what appears to be a new pic for one of my favourite sets: Set 256 …. I wonder now what other goodies are inside the issue !!!
