- Full Description
A treasure trove of classic as well as never-before-seen photos of legendary pinup icon Bettie Page, all shot by model-turned-photographer Bunny Yeager. Bunny is credited with capturing Bettie Page's true nature--her flirtatious and playfully erotic side. Culled from Yeager's extensive archive, here are her finest shots, including many nudes, which by all reports is how Bettie was most comfortable.
Yeager was a young pinup photographer in 1955 when she hit the jackpot with her shot of Bettie scantily clad in a Santa hat, which sold instantly to the fledgling Playboy magazine. It was the beginning of a long collaboration between the two women, and Yeager's photographs of Bettie have now been featured on more magazine covers than those of her contemporary, Marilyn Monroe!
This glamorous book gathers more than two hundred lens-fogging photographs of Bettie embodying the naughty girl-next-door eroticism of pin-up culture, with such playful chapters as: "Jungle Land," "Nutty Cheesecake," "Sweet and Savage," and "She Devil." A fun and sexy volume, this is the most comprehensive book on Bettie Page to date. Includes a great sequence of Bettie working with other models, on board a cruise boat (fully nude), dancing in the Florida surf, posing in bikini on amusement park rides. Most or all of these sequences were shot in Florida, Bunny's home turf.
Impressively thick volume, the nicest book on Bettie in a long time. A major collection. Includes several special full color images (most of these 1950s shots were in black and white).
