Format: Paperback
For most people, Bunny Yeager is best known for her photography work involving Bettie Page. Bunny's Honeys is a tasteful collection of many other models Miss Yeager photographed during her heyday. Having started herself as a model for US Camera, it wasn't long before she decided to go on the other side of the lens.
The models are arranged in alphabetical order, with a brief blurb on each one. Unless one were an avid student of 50's and 60's models, the names would be lost, but that's because Yeager preferred to photograph woman who hadn't been photographed before. There are colour and B&W photos. Not all of them are nudes, but being a woman herself, she did have a knack for tastefully bringing out their natural beauty in a way that men photographers wouldn't. Also, the models felt more comfortable posing in front of her as opposed to a man, which stands to reason. And the models have that 1950's look and the texture of the photographs bring out a nostalgic air.
Most of the models have two pages devoted to them. Bettie Page has six. Maria Stinger, a cross between Marilyn Monroe and Lana Turner, has only two pages devoted despite the fact that a 1954 magazine cover of her was the first photo Bunny sold. Others like Lisa Winters get their due, as Winters became a Playmate of the Year.
Yeager clearly loved her work and some creativity shows, such as the orchid bikini she designed for Joan Rawlings. She describes in the foreword how she always tried to find new posing ideas, hairstyles, etc. However, she felt alienated at the more explicit photos coming to the forefront in the 1970's: "Photos of women in men's magazines were no longer beautiful for me to look at. I didn't want to do that kind of photography. It was demeaning to women.

One of the women I most admire, including some heavy-hitters, HAS to be BUNNY YEAGER! She only took some of the most beautiful of GLAM photography ever... Labelled the queen of pin-up and cheese, I would have to take a step back and give you some history... The first intoduction I had to this book was when my friend brought it home from the bookstore, both of us female, we revelled at the insightful and beautiful natural pictures Bunny took during the 50's... Totally gorgeous herself, Bunny also had several books on self portraits as well. And the most famous, incredible pics ever taken of Betty Page??? Yup, you can thank BUNNY... She turned the 50's upsidedown, in a time of sexism... Bunny was marketing her self-taught photography skills to be the first woman photographer for PLAYBOY... And the results? Incredible shots of all SORTS of women, Bunny has an absolutely astute eye at catching not only the beauty outside, but most importantly the beauty INSIDE that a woman radiates. A natural at photography, her skills lent her to gorgeous action shots, portaits, glam shots, staged shots... All on a shoe-string budget... Bunny most importantly, does not rely on trick photography and made some of the most adorable costumes EVER... To look at bunny's honeys is to say, these girls are NATURALSsss... And that is BUNNY's ART... With a plucky get-up-and-go attitude and confidence to boot Bunny created a medium where glam photography wasn't sleazy, it was rivetting... And should teach us all a lesson these days about what's sexy and to be proud of our bodies and sensuality. Men and women! Bunny is still on the go today, still practising glamour photography... And when you see these pics, just imagine how intriguing the woman behind them is.Read more ›

The book's only flaw is that thre are too few pictures and not enough biographical information about each model. If you adore full figured natural women, looking simply heavenly, there is no better book than this. Only Bunny Yeager could have captured these goddesses looking so comfortable in almost nothing. If God is a woman, I hope SHE looks like this!
