An immensely talented artist who enjoyed a prolific career, Gil Elvgren was a master of the female form and pin-up art. For years we've enjoyed his annual calendar collections, his best-selling biography from Taschen, his pin-up work on everything from playing cards to posters. Today his original paintings are the target for high-spending collectors when they are featured in Heritage auctions. But never before have we seen the real-life girls who POSED for these iconic works--here for the first time are Elvgren's personal nude photos.

These voluptuous, smiling women were the ideal female form in the 1950s and 1960s: curvaceous, well-endowed, just like the illustrations that are so period, so unique. Here is a very intimate look behind the scenes at what inspired Gil Elvgren's iconic work, some in the very same poses you will recognize, others in wonderful candid shots that could just as well have ended up as paintings! This is lots of fun!

This fascinating volume reproduces the images in stunning quality and entirely in FULL COLOR. It builds a more complete picture of Elvgren's artistic process and it offers an insight into the development of glamour photography. However, its real beauty and impact lies in the knowledge that one of the greatest masters of the illustrated pin-up took his inspiration from the very real flesh of womanly curves in all of their natural glory.
