First Lady of Erotica
Online Collection & Identification Guide
Fifty years before Bettie Page became a pinup icon, another beauty
was equally celebrated in Europe. Her name was Miss Fernande.
Bettie adorned the pages of men’s magazines, Fernande’s medium was
erotic postcards (i.e., "French postcards"), which were all the rage at the time. Most
of her photographs were taken by Jean Agelou and distributed by his
label, JA Studios, in Paris.
Little is known about the lovely Fernande, not
even her last name (the postcards only indicate “Miss Fernande”).
Though she is largely forgotten today, her photographs are still
collected worldwide by an ardent following.
Available here online is a virtually complete
of over 400 Miss Fernande postcards, many rare and obscure. They are organized by series, in 1.5" index and 8" full size
The postcards have been restored to their original B&W state,
with distracting flaws eliminated.
