Examples of "eight-pagers," a form of twentieth-century American erotic humor popular between the world wars. The four-by-six-inch comic booklets were designed to fit easily into a pocket. Sometimes clever and satirical, they depicted cartoon characters, movie stars, and other public figures of the day in sexually explicit scenarios. The booklets ceased to be printed as other more lucrative forms of erotica became available.
