Screw began publishing in November 1968 and remained in print until going bankrupt in October 2003. A weekly pornographic newspaper aimed at heterosexual men, it launched co-publisher Al Goldstein to fame via a number of national obscenity cases and his rolodex of enemies, most notably J. Edgar Hoover. The magazine was a paean to the free press and featured writing and pictorials relating to pornography, sexually transmitted infections, escort services, fetishes, adult entertainment stores, and myriad other sex-related topics. Its top-selling issue was published in 1973 and featured frontally nude photos of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, selling more than a half-million copies.
All issues very good condition. Horizontal creases from folding.
