- Full Description
The collaboration between Bettie Page and Irving Klaw produced photographs that are far more than mere pin-ups, embracing fetish themes like bondage, girl fights, spanking, and all the fetish clothing, from seamed stockings to high heels. Here are satisfying large, full page photos, most of them very high quality, crisp and sharp. They have given generations of people something to admire, by showing one strong, unapologetic woman, at home in her curvaceous body, with flashing eyes and a killer smile.
Chapters include Bold, Beautiful, Bondage, Brush, Bashful and Bullwhip. Brush of course applies to the back of a brush, the favorite device for administering "discipline" from one girl, in sexy undies, to another. Bettie could be either the submissive one or the dominatrix. She could play every role, as evidenced by the "Bullship" chapter, which has her wielding an actual whip or a ride crop, but always the action is all implied, usually with just Bettie posing and looking stern and commanding!
While by today's standards some of these photographs may seem tame, even humorous, there was nothing funny about what Bettie and Irving were up to. They were, perhaps unwittingly, blazing a trail for future pro-sex feminists to follow, by creating a portrait of a woman's life built on confidence, tolerance, and sexual freedom.
The largest-sized Bettie collection we've seen in some time, including some double-page photos.
