Toots and Casper in “A Little Variety”, (n.p. n.d.)
4.5″ x 3″, 8pp. pamphlet, stapled, middle page loose
Tijuana bibles (also known as eight-pagers, bluesies, gray-backs, Jiggs-and-Maggie books, jo-jo books, Tillie-and-Mac books, and two-by-fours) were little pornographic comic books produced in the United States from the 1920s to the early 1960s. Their popularity peaked during the Great Depression era. This book parodies Toots and Casper, a long running family comic strip from 1918 to 1956.
