Format: Hardcover
If Lizabeth Scott had spawned a bunch of brush-wielding brats they'd be aptly represented by this amazing compilation of cocktail guzzling, cleavage bursting, chain smoking harpies. The boy's club is over as of the publishing of this terrific book. Lowbrow art is no longer an exclusively masculine enterprise, and the results are more varied than their macho counterparts.
Outstanding artists include Sharon Leong's pulp fiction insanity, Rebecca Seven's superhero erotica, Lisa Petrucci's toy dementia, Vicki PopTart's rockabilly fever dreams, Niagara, and Christine Karas, among others. Half the fun is discovering these artists and picking out your favorite.
Sherri Cullison has done an outstanding job bringing these hard-boiled art dames together and you need to catch this wave before these fatales get too big for the trendy, tiny galleries.

Format: Hardcover
This book seems long overdue, though at the same time it's hard to wonder why the women of the "lowbrow" art movement had to be relegated to their own book (rather than integrated more equally into other books on the genre). But hey, we gotta be grateful for what we get -- and boy, do we get some *great* art in this book. Sherri Cullison writes with real insight and warmth for her subjects, and with this many artists featured (twenty!), there's a lot to look at. One could almost say too much -- if I have any, mild, criticism of the book it's that the selection of artists is all over the map. There's "Juxtapoz" art stars like the astonishing Isabel Samaras, confrontational Niagara, always appealing Lisa Petrucci as well as the pleasures of new discoveries (Andrea Tucker -- wow!), but then there's questionable choices who seem like they need to log a few more miles of art road before they merit inclusion in a book like this. But that shouldn't stop you from purchasing and enjoying this exceptional book, guaranteed to give both your brain and your eyeballs a workout.

Format: Hardcover
In a world of artsy-fartsy so called "cutting edge" artists, it is so refreshing to find an author who brings us the REAL DEAL when it comes to the Ladies of Lowbrow Art. Sheri Cullison's gorgeous folio, brings us some of the world's finest female talent. I have always been a fan of Lisa Petrucci's "Kiddle" cuties, and who doesn't love Blood-Bath McGrath's super sexy style... But, trust me, the real breakout artist of this particulaer tome is the amazing Kirsten Easthope! Thank God someone has given our beloved old bowling pins a proper home. I ended up buying two of them right off of her Queenpindeluxe website!!! They are truly amazing in their detail, and a real homage to the great artists of the pin-up era. Bravo Girls!!! I can't wait to see where these girls take us in the future!

This book is going to help immensely for my research paper on Lowbrow art. Lots of great images and bios.

i was so dissapointed in this books content. instead of amazing work, i mostly saw women trying to hard to be edgy, or ok with nudes. boring, bland, and overreaching. thumbs down.
