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!
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.
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.
