Digging Up Past Gems: Spotlight On An Indelible Decade

 An Indelible Decade

A few years back (2006), MudScout published An Indelible Decade: E.R. Huntington, Apprentice Under Sail & Arctic Constable, 1908-1918, by Beverley Huntington Rogers. I’m returning to this now because, for various reasons, the book flew under the radar at the time of its release, and it’s the kind of title that deserves to be rediscovered and read for years to come.

An Indelible Decade is more than just a family history.

The Joy of Hosen: Lederhosen Lucil Up Close Und Pictorial (2006) was designed by artist and master          poster maker Todd “Breeree” Stewart. The 96-page book features photographer  Jocelyn Michel’s juicy shots of Lucil sporting each of her unique          hosen.
A few reviews:
“The Joy of Hosen is an intriguing book, blending collage and colour photographs. Lucil is photogenic, charismatic, and obviously not shy. She looks good in lederhosen, no question … There’s a demure, innocent quality to Lucil’s look—more playful burlesque spoofing than fetish.”-Ottawa XPress, March 23 2006 “… charmant petit livre renfermant photos, dessins et historique des différents costumes portés par la mignonne Teutonne au fil des ans”-ici, 30 Mars 2006 “From her humble beginnings at a dingy basement martini party in Toronto to her rise as an indie-electro cult icon in Montreal, the life of Lederhosen Lucil is now available in book form. The Joy of Hosen: Lederhosen Lucil Up Close  und Pictorial is a scrapbook of Krista Muir’s eight years spent donning  blond braids and Bavarian short pants.”-Dose, 22 March 2006
