Nudist Life at Spielplatz, the story of a modern experiment in the art of living by Charles Sennet, with an art supplement of photographs taken at the Hertfordshire nudist resort by Stephen Glass, was published by The Naturist Ltd. in 1956. The 56 page booklet is pretty rare so I was pretty surprised to come across a nice clean copy that I managed to match up with the original negative of the cover image taken by Stephen Glass. As you can see they flipped the image round for the cover. Not sure who the models are and I guess I should do a bit more research into Charles Sennet. If you know any details feel free to email me or post them in the comments.

In April 1957, when the first issue of Kamera was ready for the printers, Pamela Green and Harrison Marks decided to go to the Isles of Scilly again — this time taking Marie Deveraux and Lorraine Burnett to work with them. The object of which was not only to take a selection of nudes for their new magazine, but also for a hardcover book entitled Kamera on Location featuring outdoor nudes only. It was their most successful book by far which is reflected in the high price a copy demands today.

In the forward of the book George Harrison Marks talks about going to the Hebrides. According to Pamela’s biography they went to the Isles of Scilly, which actually makes more sense. For all you trivia buffs, the long black wig Pamela occasionally wears in the book was originally made for the French prima ballerina Ludmilla Tchérina, who wore it for her role as Giulietta in the Powell and Pressburger film The Tales of Hoffman.

Kamera on Location (1958) — a magnificent collection of pictures featuring the beauty of womanhood coupled with the photographic artistry of a craftsman. A genuine gem for the collectors’ bookshelf.

He’s an extremely rare picture of Pamela Green with Rita Landre together. It was taken for the book Pamela that was printed by Luxor Press (ca 1956). George and Pam received a few copies of the book, but they never got paid. Their prints and transparencies were never returned either. The book has 66 pages and cost 18/-. Copies for sale occasionally appear on the Abe Books website .
