I do not believe there is anything that reflects a society's character than the porn it suppresses. The Tijuana Bibles of the 1920s and 1930s are a case in point. These funny little books that take on Hollywood actors and actresses, cartoon and comic strip characters as well as prominent women and men; are true Americana. As such, they were outlawed and anyone selling or printing them faced jail time. This book, a collection of some of the best of these little books, is a classic. I love this book and the complete lack of political correctness presented in this review of the Tijuana Bibles from the 20s/30s. It's naughty, but definitely nice! -Sam Oliverio Jr.
