Many posts to this group have asked for a list or source of nudist and assorted topic magazines + videos. I myself have wondered if such a list could be found at one time; paging through groups such as rec.nude and others, I could find no list.
Recently, I received an offer by a reader to post a list of nudist sources he had compiled. He kindly forwarded his list to me, and I agreed to append some of the nudist and assorted topic sources I had compiled myself, and then post here.
Although these are genuine, legal sources, be 100% of what you'll buy before sending payment. Some may take what seems like forever to deliver. Ask for a brochure or catalog first, then choose carefully.
If problems arise, be persistent with the company and send letters as needed.
A request: if anyone could provide further magazine / video / photo sources for this list, please e-mail them to me, to email@example.com. I will include them in future editions; if possible, please provide a brief description and any recommended titles from the source.
Your message will be sent to the server, labeled with an anon id address (one will be made for you if this is your first time) and I will see only your anon address with your replies.
I welcome all public and private feedback on this and my other lists.
Thanks for your continued support and interest; enjoy! :)

A friend of mine mentioned a magazine they publish in Germany called "Kinder der Sonne," or "children of the sun." He lives in the UK and tells me their magazines are exclusively focused on prepubertal children throughout. I'm currently checking on their ease of acqui- sition here in the US.
[Update: I have myself seen a recent publication of the magazine through a good friend I met on the net. The magazine is gorgeous, and has breathtaking color and B&W photographs of children, mostly girls, from all over the world. Highly recommended!
The magazine is now called "Aus der Welt der FKK Jugend." It is a joy to hold and see! Available to US customers too! :) ]

Date: Fri, 3 Dec 1993 15:03:45 EST Sender: History of Photography (PHOTOHST@ASUACAD.BITNET) From: Dr Philip G Stokes (100021.2555@COMPUSERVE.COM) Subject: Photographic Images of Children
Following mine of the other day, here not without a bit of work on the scan, and not in anyone's style manual format, is the whole bibliographical section from the Ron Oliver papers, including the comment paras.
Historically, this is a censorship problem that seems to be of a cyclical nature. Within the general paradigm of child nudity imaging there are numerous sets of criteria, and I suspect that in this list there will be some that do not sit easily side-by-side: since this isn't my composition I can't comment further, except to say that I think any representative listing of UK work should contain something by John Everard, and I offer this as being exemplified in Artist's Model, London: The Bodley Head,1951.
Do come back to me if you would find a more detailed set of papers valuable.
[Ron Oliver's authorship from here onwards]
Since the birth of photography in the nineteenth century, children have been photographed unclothed. For centuries before that, depictions of nude children have appeared in all forms of art. Many respected photographers around the world continue this theme today. The renowned Marcus Adams, best known for photographing the Royal family and our own Queen Elizabeth II (when she was a child), also frequently photographed children nude.
Somewhat hypocritical and misleading, is the fact that book shops and libraries in Britain stock photographic books that contain full-frontal nude depictions ofchildren of all ages and British television occasionally broadcasts programmes that include full-frontal nude depictions of children minors. For some reason the police have chosen not to attack these publications or broadcasting authorities. This undoubtedly gives the impression and license to parents, artists and photographers, that the taking of similar pictures is tolerated and permissable.
My work remains well within the standards set by images that are available in good book-stores throughout Britain. The books listed below, all contain at least one image (almost always full-frontal), of a completely nude child. Some contain many more. They are, or have been, easily available in good art bookshops in the UK. In the case of the older ones which are now out of print, they sometimes appear in second-hand bookshops and photo-fairs.
The list is by no means comprehensive. Not listed are the numerous travel brochures, bathroom and shower catalogues, advertisements for cosmetics, toiletries, medicines and other products, and the numerous art-postcards etc. etc., that also depict nude children from time to time.

Also of significance, BBC 2 recently aired a Norwegian Film "The Ice Palace", which depicts full-frontal nude scenes of girls approaching puberty.
Item 16 on this list, "25 Years of an Artist", by David Hamilton, was published in the UK in September 1993. Mr Hamilton is known world wide for his "sensual" photographs of pubescent girls, many of which are included in this, his latest book. It is sold in bookshops throughout England, including the book departments of Harrods and Selfridges. Some bookshops have reported extraordinarily large sales figures for this book and the Obscene Publications Squad have made no moves whatsoever to seize it.
Mr Hamilton has also directed several films (the best known of which is "Bilitis"), that are for sale and hire in video shops throughout the UK. Another fine one, shown on Cinemax, once, is, "Summer of Laura."
For future editions of this guide I hope to edit out any and all addresses which are defunct or too difficult to deal with. Please send me your feedback and experiences with these companies if you can. Thanks!...
