More fixie chicks

When do fixies become art? When they’ve got naked chicks draped over them. 

How lovely for us that girls go naked in the name of art. Walk out of a shop with Playboy in your hand and you’re a dirty old perve. Walk out with the naked issue of Black and White and you’re a sophisticated gent with wide ranging interests in art and culture.

Treats! Magazine is such a publication. In their own words:

TREATS! Magazine is a limited edition fine art, printed quarterly. Featuring luxurious and exclusive content by the best photographers, models, stylists, writers and artists.

And here’s how it was done in my day.
