Two privately made booklets in Croatian language include photographically reproduced illustrations of rather graphic nature. The story in the first pamphlet with a title “Wedding Night of Miss Mica” is about a newlyweds on their wedding night, being observed by a hotel employee through the keyhole. The second story without a title is about an unexperienced newlyweds, who get practical tips on their intimate life from a priest. Both texts are written in rimes in rather vulgar language with a comical notes.
The pocket books are not dated, but were probably made in 1930s, according to the clothing and female hairstyles. They were reproduced with a photographic method and sold privately.
The survival rate of such books is extremely rare, as they would be destroyed or already thrown away by their owners or their heirs. As in 1930s Croatia was still relatively liberal, the Ustaše government in WWII, supporting family values and religion, supressed vulgar words, cursing, and liberal sexual activities.
