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.

i first saw a copy of this book in a tattoo shop. i couldn't put it down while i was there. there's a lot of great artwork in this book. use it for reference or just for viewing pleasure. i'm probably going to take a few pages and frame them. this is quality stuff. real pin up art from the era when it was created.

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!

This is a jumble of pin ups and not showing some of the classics. Most of it is collage on most pages of random images and other information. The book is also pretty small and tightly bound together so you can really enjoy the images

This is more than just a huge book with excellent pin up art. It also includes a ton of information about pin ups in general throughout the book. Lots of cool old ads etc. If you want a reference book for shooting pin ups or if you are a model and need a guide for posing - this is the book for you!!!

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.

No nudity and I didn't expect it. It's mainly composed of old (early 1950's) teaser magazines covers. There are some background writings about the magazines and some old ads that are comical now looking back. The book is heavy, thick and small making it easy to crease the paperback binding. Also the reproductions of the magazine cover drawings are cropped and that was disappointing.
