Editorial Reviews

Review

"Retro style was never hotter than the mod decades, when the men were mad and the suits were plaid. These groovy gals and natty guys are the coolest cats around. Reeda Joseph, vintage archivist and collector of rarities, has gathered up the very best the fifties and sixties have to offer, with images that will inspire you to pick up some bongos and twist the night away."
—Networking Witches

"Aged to Confection! Viva Editions' Man Candy: Dishy Dudes and Mod Men is a sweetly humorous gift book pairing retro photos of hunky men from the '50s and '60s with funny captions."
—Gift and Decorative Magazine

"Let your eyes feast on these vintage hunks from connoisseur Reeda Joseph's collection of photographs. Paired with Reeda's snappy wit, these photos will satisfy any woman's appetite."
—LA Splash

"This little book packs 72 pages of full color vintage photos of the era’s most dashing men."
—City Book Review

"They may have been mad, but no one can deny men knew what to wear in the ’50s and ’60s. More than just gorgeous, the studs gracing these pages are dapper to boot, and that’s the recipe for some delicious Man Candy!
—Indiana Chronicle

"This is the kind of book that you’ll want to pick up again and again."
—Mama Likes This

"I LOVE this little book! Girlfriends make the world go 'round."
—BJ Gallagher, author of Friends Are Everything

"This confection of a book is like candy—tart, satisfying, and so much sweeter when it is shared. A cheeky homage to the unbreakable bonds between women."
—Ame Mahler Beanland and Emily Miles Terry, authors of the New York Times bestsellers It's a Chick Thing and It's a Chick Thing: Celebrating the Wild Side of Women's Friendships.

Guys We Think About, Talk About, and Dream About

Retro style was never hotter than the mod decades, when the men were mad and the suits were plaid. These groovy gals and natty guys are the coolest cats around. Reeda Joseph, vintage archivist and collector of rarities, has gathered up the very best the fifties and sixties have to offer, with images that will inspire you to pick up some bongos and twist the night away.

By Mary Martino on March 27, 2014
Format: Hardcover
Crisp photographs of men, page after page, for the reader to look at. That’s it. A simple idea, yet one that kept me in smiles from the first page onward. I looked. I daydreamed. I wondered. I imagined. I felt a gluttonous enjoyment in sitting still and looking at the men. I made up stories about what they were doing, then I laughed at the stories. I had fun with this book, and I expect I’ll pull it off the shelf and look at the pictures again in the future, and make up different stories.

While I didn’t intend it to, this small, gift-size book did tug me toward serious thoughts, also. Reflecting the prevalent marketing of the 1950s and 1960s, all the men are white. The author could have written a bunch of words about how unbalanced our societal view of beauty was fifty years ago. Kudos to her for knowing that a (lack of a) picture is, indeed, worth a thousand critical words.

The men themselves are beautiful. I loved the impeccable cleanliness of the men, the fun settings of the photographs, and the marvelous sweaters.

I did wonder what made the author decide to create this book. Then I realized that by not telling me all about herself or the men, the book is free to be whatever I need it to be on any given day. How delightful!

A great, great read! A book full of wonderful old advertisements and pictures from the 50s and 60s. MAN CANDY is like a tour through history that shows us what real fashion is. There's absolutely lovely and funny captions as well. Even old pick up lines such as "Would you like to go steady with me?" A book for everyone!

It's a little book that creates a big impact on the senses bringing us ladies back to the era of the 50s and 60s when guys had to really try to get the girl. From head to toe, no matter the costume, these men are a delight to look at and with Reeda Joseph's adorable wit, this book would make a great stocking stuffer this Christmas. Well, since this year's Christmas is almost over, make that a delicious addition to her Valentine.

As a child of the 90s, I found this book to be pretty amusing. The lingo, the hairstyles, the clothes! Whether or not you lived during the 50s and 60s, you'll probably enjoy this quick little page-turner. The carefully selected photos (some of which are truly eye candy!) are paired with jokes, cheesy pick-up lines, and sexual innuendos, among other humorous bits. As a token of nostalgia or as an entertaining vision of past days, this book certainly delivers.
