- Full Description
80 classic photographs of Page, never before published in a single volume, which cover almost every aspect of her modelling work with the legendary king of sleaze, Irving Klaw. From sexy pin-ups in lingerie and fetish-wear to more intense scenes of sado-masochism, bondage, spanking and cat-fights, this anthology presents the essential Bettie Page in the full range of her starring roles! The photographs selected also feature many of Klaw's other regular bondage models.
The girls switch off roles, as Bettie might be taking a hairbrush back to one girl's bottom, while in another she's bound and gagged and the subject of the spanking. There's wrestling and feigned slapping, lots of getting tied up with ropes and even handcuffs and short chains, and even a bondage apparatus or two. And outfits from high heels to leather, classic nylons and black or white undies and bras, to leopard skin bikinis and burlesque wear, like a metal cone bra.
Irving Klaw was the legendary New York-based mail order merchant who from 1949 onwards produced thousands of films, photographic sets and printed booklets based on themes of fetishism, bondage, and sado-masochism. Although Klaw's most enduring artistic legacy arguably lies in his pioneering publishing work in the field of bondage illustration, he will always be best-known for his discovery and promotion of the iconic bondage model who went on to be famous throughout the cool world -- Bettie Page.
Through thousands of BDSM-themed photographs, as well as numerous short films, Page would become not only the superstar of the Klaw catalogue but, retrospectively, the most iconic fetish model of all time. Each photo is either full page or double page. The quality varies a little, but most are very clear, especially many with just Bettie posing by herself in fetish outfits, with her classic smile and come-hither love affair with the viewer.
