The work of artist Eugene Bilbrew might be better known had not a dozen books with his illustrations on the cover been confiscated and outlawed in the late 1950s. While he drew for 20 years, his work is still little known outside a small group of deviant collectors and enthusiasts.
Jim Linderman is a Grammy-nominated collector, visual artist, and popular culture historian. His popular Vintage Sleaze blog has over 650,000 Facebook followers. His book Times Square Smut is forthcoming, and a photographic essay titled The Birth of Rock and Roll will be published late this year. On the site Dull Tool Dim Bulb he discusses little known art forms, photography, and other lurid things. The New York Times once called Linderman "one of the world's greatest pickers."
