- Full Description
Model. Pin-up. Actress. Singer. Writer. Royalty. Blonde Swedish countess Eva Lynd’s multi-faceted career touches every aspect of 20th century popular culture. A model for leading illustration artists and top glamour and pin-up photographers, cover-featured on true detective and men's magazines, a model for the "sweat" mags for both covers and stories, she also appeared in well-known films and television series. This lavishly illustrated volume drawn from her personal archives, Eva Lynd shares her story in her own words and pictures.
The latest installment in the acclaimed Men's Adventure Library series from editors Robert Deis and Wyatt Doyle, Eva: Men's Adventure Supermodel includes artwork from pulp masters such as Norm Eastman, Al Rossi, Mike Ludlow, and James Bama! Plus never before seen pin-ups and previously unpublished photos from Eva's personal archive.
Please note: This softcover edition is abridged from the 186-page hardcover. It focuses primarily on Eva's work in men's adventure ("sweat") magazines. The hardcover edition, with 72 more pages, looks at all this but also has more detail on early modeling work, semi-nude spreads for premier men's (slick) magazines of the 1950s, and her television and movie career.
I can't say that I recognize her name, but I'm not expert in this field. However, I certainly recognize many of the covers she appears on. And she's quite beautiful, and certainly was talented enough to keep working long after most models have finished their careers. And even though she did work for the "sweats" she really seems like she kept her integrity and her class; if she ever posed for full nudes, you only see a hint of that here, just like was common in the 1950s magazines.
She also posed with the famous male model Steve Holland, a regular model for James Bama's Doc Savage paperback covers, and the two of them frequent models for Norm Eastman's countless men's mag covers (Men Today, Man's Story, Man's Peril, Man's Conquest). Very interesting.
