clothing-optional LIFE

 

Introduction: After publishing 2 issues of BAREFOOT, we learned that we were overly ambitious in expanding the scope to include any aspect of natural living while our clientele was mainly interested in the area of natural dress and body acceptance. Deciding to stick with what we did best, we narrowed the scope to clothing-optional living, and no longer emphasized only Christianity. The new masthead was named "clothing-optional LIFE." 4 issues were published under this masthead. All are now out of print but are still available on CD for $7 each.

masthead

 

Introduction: After publishing 4 issues of clothing-optional LIFE, we realized the masthead was not precise, as we were not really promoting the option of clothes, but of naturism. So we again adapted the name of the magazine though the scope and format remained as they had been with clothing-optional LIFE. We began in 1991 with NLI 5, and ended in 2002 with NLI 28. Most issues are still in print and available for $7 each, but a few are now available only on CD also for $7 each. If an issue is out of print, it is clearly marked in the listing below.
