Anyone who has kept up with this blog knows that one of my favorite paperback and pinup artists is Ernest “Darcy” Chiriacka. So, naturally, I noticed when Pulp International posted scans of Esquire magazine’s 1952 calendar, featuring “twelve luscious lovelies in full color,” all by Chiriacka himself. I presume that men who originally purchased copies of this “Esquire Girl” almanac (at 50¢ apiece!) flipped through its offerings regularly, and saved the work for later reference.
