IMPERMEABLE DELECTABLE (Richmond, Surrey: Weather Vain, January 1971-July 1974).

A broken run of 8 issues of this home-made magazine dedicated to rubber fetishism, produced by a rubberwear retailer "for the promotion of their rubber garments." 18mo. Tapebound along spine.

Each issue consists of 24 duplicated typescript pages, printed recto only, with the contents divided between fictionalised fantasies ("Fantasy in Mackintosh" and "Diary of the Converted") and readers' letters, together with 10 original b/w photographic prints bound in (including front cover).

The issues are: January-March, August, October and December 1971; July-August 1972; January, February-April 1973; and July 1974 (four of the eight issues also have newsletters loosely inserted). Some curling to covers and pages, o/w Very Good.

A good run of this underground Mackintosh magazine, filled with 80 original 16.5x12cm. b/w photographic prints of rubber fetish and erotic bondage imagery. Publication of the last issue in the run immediately preceded the opening of 'SEX', Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood's revamped shop on the King's Road. The shop's name was emblazoned with a giant sign made of pink rubber, and the latex garments and bondage wear it sold marked the transition of fetish clothing from its origin in underground magazines such as these to the emergent punk subculture and its eventual acceptance into mainstream pop fashion.
