More about this item

Author: Isabella Alston Publisher/Date: Taj Books, North Carolina (c. 2014) First Printing. ISBN: 9781844062645 Format/Condition: New small hardcover book with dust jacket in Fine condition. 96 pages, index; 6 x 6 1/4 inches. Profusely illustrated in color and black-and-white. Description: The image most indelibly linked to the term Pin-Up Girl is a busty, long-legged, beautiful woman posing provocatively on calendars, posters, and in magazines primarily during the World War II years, most often in the U.S. militaryโ€™s Yank magazine. These images make up the quintessential and most recognizable Pin-Up Girls, although they are only representative of a specific era in pin-up history. The Pin-Up Girl has actually been around since the late 19th century. The pin-up genre ran the gambit, both in art and photography, from simply the image of a glamorous and beautiful woman to what was considered quite risquรฉ before the swinging sixtiesโ€”total nudity. Many Pin-Up Girls made a mark for themselves later as models or actresses, but the launching pad of their careers was a growing market for these โ€œcheesecakeโ€ images. Today, sex and nudity are no longer taboo. In the midst of the blatant exhibitionism we find ourselves surrounded by today, the discretion of pin-up is a welcome respite as well as a comforting recollection of years gone by. We invite you to take a stroll down memory lane and enjoy a more innocent time. BONUS: I'll include a B W snapshot of Bettie Page with this order! Now, how can you beat that?
