Glittering Icons

"Glittering icons "larger-than-life"...waved hair spilling over beds of white animal furs, glazed lips parting seductively, Vaselined lids lowered languidly, arms alluringly akimbo or entwined in hair, non-chalantly helping to expose breasts - creatures of light, of marble, of glass. This was the American dream on paper. These images are not subtle; they are, like icons, made to be adored; they are to be coveted, to be collected like works of art" J. Kobal
