Tijuana Bible – Betty Boop

‘Tijuana Bibles’ were palm sized sexually explicit adult comics from the 1920’s and 1930’s that were sold surreptitiously for twenty-five cents. The popular characters from movies and comics were featured without the permission of the copyright holder or original artist. In a time before widely available photographs of naked women and men this was one way a young person might learn something about sexual intercourse a least in a comedy setting. I took this series of panels from a Betty Boop story and cleaned the graphics up. I took several hours to remove stray ink marks, unnecessary lines, reduced the wordy text… added some music.
