This cover was shot in Ferro's hometown of Nice and features Jacques Chenier.



  1. Muscle Magazine was also on sale in France. This is the August 1966 edition and my first pair of French swimming trunks were exactly like the ones Jacques Chenier is sporting, but for the life of me, I cannot now remember where we were when Mamie and Papi France bought them for me.

    1. My small collection of Muscle Magazine covers includes some that were priced (and hence marketed) for all the countries with French speaking populations. Others were only done up for a single country. I suppose that they circulated fairly freely in either case. It's funny how we attach fond memories to bathing suits. I have a couple in my old memory bank that have stayed with me forever.
