    Art Lovers Take Note!!

    I am very happy I decided to pick up this book! Not only do you find incredible, beautiful paintings, you also have a not so brief history of the genre along with personal notes on the artists themselves. Wonderfully written, articulate and thorough, this book delivers an education in the genre of Pin-up Art. I HIGHLY recommend this book!

    Gift for Grandpa

    I got this gift for my fiance's grandfather. He lives alone now, and he just watches the news all day. I figured he might like it for a little 'light reading' and because the images are what he grew up seeing during WWII. They are artfully presented in the book, and give a pretty good background on the artist's work.

    It's a lovely book!

    I bought this as a gift for someone and they really liked it. The girls in the book are cute and sexy without being garish or crude. Pin-ups are what sexy should still be!

    The Great American Pin-Up

    This is a great book to look through as well as read. I loved seeing many of the illustrations that I either own or have owned in the past. It is a great genre. Fun and informative.

    'THE GREAT AMERICAN PIN-UP' IS JUST THAT GREAT

    THIS BOOK HAS NOT ONLY THE PIN-UPS BUT ALSO GIVES YOU BIOS ON ALL THE ARTIST WHO DID THEM AND FOR WHOM THEY DID THEM FOR. IT STARTS OFF WITH THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY PIN-UPS AND GOES INTO THE 60's WHEN THE PIN-UPS DECLINED. IT COVERS ALL THE GREATS ARTISTS FROM PETTY, VARGAS, AND ELVGREN AND AS WELL AS THOSE THEY OVER SHADOWED; ARMSTRONG, BUELL, DE VORSS, MOZERT,MAC PHERSON, RUNCI AND OTHERS. IT ALSO INCLUDES MICS. ARTIST WHO CAME IN AT THE END OF THE PIN-UP YEARS AS WELL AS THOSE WHO NEVER GOT AS FAMOUS AS THEIR CONTEMPORIES. ALL PICTURES ARE IN FULL COLOR AND RANGE FROM FULL PAGE TO QUARTER AND SIXTH PAGE SIZE. THE PIN-UPS GO FROM THE FULLY CLOTHED TO FULL NUDITY AND ALL RANGES INBETWEEN. THE ONLY NEGATIVE THING ABOUT THIS BOOK IS THAT IT DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE TITLE IF ANY OF THE ALL PIN-UPS. OTHER THEN THAT THIS IS A GREAT BOOK FOR ALL THOSE WHO LOVE PIN-UPS.
