Customer Reviews

This is great for anyone who loves pin-ups.
Eric Anthony Morcos
I think the book could have been a little bigger than it is so that you can lay the book flat on a table so you can read it.

I bought this book for myself for Christmas 2011 .

I just love the old pinup girls.
THe girls look so sexy in the dresses and stockings. And then, that little bit of wind the dress goes up and you see that bit of stocking and garter and if you are lucky her panties.
now you have same in black and white plus same colour one. I think the book could have been a little bigger than it is so that you can lay the book flat on a table so you can read it. But overall the book is grate for my collection.

I was wanting to start a library with different pin-up collections and this was the perfect one to start with. It's a small book but has plenty of eye candy. Would buy this for friends researching or interested in Pin-ups.

If you're a fan of Bettie Page, Dita von Teese, or Mad Men, you'll love this book. It's basically page after page of magazine covers and (cheesy, kitschy, utterly adorable) photo-spreads from your parent's generation.

For true fans of pin-up culture, you'll probably spot a few photos that you've seen floating about elsewhere on the internet, but most of the artwork was entirely new to me...and I write a blog on lingerie ([...])!

The only sad thing is that this book is no longer published, and you'll have to pay an arm and leg for a volume that cost less than $10 a few months ago. Definitely worth picking up if you find an affordable version though!

Lot's of pictures and good drawings by Peter Dreben. The book is quite thick for a small size so it's difficult to keep it open without holding it's pages apart. My particular interest is on the drawings but the photos show an eroticism from a time long gone... Good fun. The whole is worth the relatively little price you pay for it.

I expected to use the graphics in this book for a project, but the graphics were cropped too much to scan them and tweak them... but the collection of pictures was just great. Lots of images i've not seen, which is always exciting! All in all, a good purchase.

I purchased this book to help design a tattoo. It was VERY helpful, and now it makes for a nice coffee-table book! There are a few repeats of photos in this book, but that's because they're from different magazine covers, or different months.

This book is exactly what you would expect. 1000 pin-ups of many different styles. They are classy yet seductive, and sexy yet sophisticated. This was a very nice addition to the coffee table.

The content (of this book) itself is great in case you expect exactly what the cover says - 1000 pin-up images. All drawings (or those pages with photos and vintage adds) are covers from magazines mentioned in other reviews.
This could really be nice, but... All images are cropped by some (approx.) 10% so you will never see the whole cover - sometimes is cropped also part of the draving or photo. So the great idea of covers' reprint is immediately destroyed by insensitive cropping.
There is always one cover per one page (ok, this is positive). The book is extra thick and I am not sure how long will the shelf back survive some serious browsing. On the other hand, book price is fair for what you will get.
My ranking is closer to three stars (rather than 4), although it may look severe. There is no reason why crop the covers and not to shrink them to fit the page.
