Kasia Charko for Biba

Illustrator Kasia Charko has worked on numerous children’s books…but back in the early 70’s she also created these fabulous pin-up style images for the different departments of  Big Biba.

I think this cheeky lolita schoolgirl is my favourite!

More Beardsley stylings with these illustations by Otto Franz. I can’t seem to find any information on this artist, but I’m guessing these were drawn in the 1960’s if the hairstyles are anything to go by!

Oh lordy! Just visited Hazard Books’ Website and reminded myself how much I need to order their beautiful ‘In Biba’ and ‘Sin Biba’ books ASAP.

Illustrator Chris Price has got the most utterly perfect style – Aubrey Beardsley meets swinging 60’s, sartorial yet a little bit underground and very very decadent!

And as if my lust list wasn’t long enough, they have also released a rather tantalising handmade volume titled ‘Nude Ego‘ which contains, and I quote, ‘truly shocking illustrations’. I want one now!!
