FIESTA.

This popular and long-running magazine was first published in February 1967.  Its publisher, Russell Gay, had a long established background in British glamour photography, having worked for Spick, Span, Carnival etc. and then published his own titles, QT and Model.  With the arrival of Penthouse magazine Gay saw that the days of the pocket-sized photo magazines were numbered and he decided to bring out a new large format magazine, Fiesta, taking over the title of the then defunct pocket-sized magazine with which he had been associated.  Whereas Penthouse and Playboy were ostensibly aimed at a more middle-class educated market, Gay deliberately set out to produce a magazine for, in his own words, "the ordinary bloke".

Fiesta is a fun magazine, unpretentious and with an often tongue in cheek approach to glamour and sex.  After the early editions it also introduced the quite outrageous Readers' Wives section, where all kinds of unlikely ladies display their often dubious charms on the candlewick bedspreads and fireside rugs of suburbia!

The first issue is that for 1967 February.  The first few issues are dated but un-numbered and two issues June/July and July/August cover a three month period: otherwise it was (and still is) published on a monthly basis.  The first issue to have a number being Vol 1 No 8, the October issue.
