Fashion in Page: Pin-up style

This book is a selection of pin-up girl images from photographer Bunny Yeager, celebrated for her playfully erotic photos of Bettie Page that continue to influence photography and fashion today. The only woman pin-up photographer of her day, Bunny Yeager was also a model. After winning several beauty pageants in Miami, Yeager went to photography school, and in 1955, she hit the jackpot with her shot of Bettie Page scantily clad in a Santa hat, which sold instantly to Playboy magazine. The beginning of a long collaboration and  her photographs of Bettie have now been featured on many magazine covers. This glamorous volume gathers more than a hundred  photographs embodying the naughty girl-next-door eroticism of pin-up culture.  The collection, from Yeager’s extensive archive, includes her iconic shots of the legendary Bettie as well as many previously unpublished images. A fun and sexy book, it is sure to tap into the current burlesque trend and the popularity of glamour photography and vintage American culture.
