  1. Thanks so much for posting these erotic drawings of Gilbert III. I’ve been searching high and low for them, I remember seeing them in Muscular Development Magazines.

  2. I had a very similar experience in college in the early 1970s of furtively buying Muscular Development magazines, which were in the back of a health foods store along with Strength and Health magazine. I was amazed that such a conservative magazine would print anything as over-the-top as the Gilbert illustrations. And now, 50 years later, I find that Gilbert also did major bondage artwork, with his wildly muscled guys bound up in chains. Amazing! Thanks for describing how artwork in the bodybuilding mags evolved over the decades. Too bad that Gilbert’s work has become so obscure and hidden. Not surprising I guess, but still too bad.
