Published Beacon Book - (framed in presentation with the cover painting)

The 1961 cover painting for the Beacon Book title Wild Body was created by an as-of-yet unidentified American artist. This novel by Manning Clay first appeared in digest form in 1953, our gallery also has that earlier cover painting available for sale.
This lurid sleaze pulp fiction offering promises a wild ride -- with more than a hint of Lesbianism. "Everyone wanted Valerie- including her pretty roommate.The strange history of Valerie, victim of her mother's lechery, her father's looseness, and her own burning lust!"

Framed and matted under glass with a copy of the published paperback
