Jean-Paul Goude showed us his sexy drawings-naughty ''doodles'' stashed away in his carnets intimes. Also around that time, Mats Gustafson showed us a couple of the first male nudes he had ever done. And so the idea for our next issue was born. To us, the brown corrugated box sleeve held shut by a black elastic band represented a certain rawness and reminded us of those raunchy magazines that arrive in the mail in a plain brown-paper envelope. Mats also provided the ''illustrated'' writing for the cover. (We did not realize that he had also drawn the logos for Interview and Mirabella.) Inside, the credits were written out on a rickety old typewriter. They say sex sells, and EROTICA flew out of the stores (after Issue 1, it is the hardest issue to come by). In printing Steven Meisel's anatomical close-up we came to an important realization. Namely, that Visionaire was here to print things that no other publication would. We were worried that some of the material might shock our printers until we found out that they had dealt in hard-core pornography. Compared to what they were used to seeing, our stuff was nothing.
