"More than 250 previously unpublished photos by Ms. Yeager are collected in the coffee-table book Bettie Page: Queen of Curves, with text by Petra Mason, to appear in October." -New York Times
“…Bettie Page: Queen of Curves, features previously unreleased photos of Page. Indeed, you’ll notice that one of the many things that sets Page apart is her expert grasp of how to accentuate her "holy shit!" figure. She was often lifting, reaching, stretching, twisting, and rejoicing. Maybe it's this obvious confidence and unabashed joy — all despite the many challenges Page faced in her impoverished, abusive childhood — that makes Bettie so appealing to women. In fact, women make up the majority of Page’s fan base, according to filmmaker Mark Mori, director of the documentary Bettie Page Reveals All. She inspires females of all sizes and shapes to embrace and express who they are, as they are.” –Refinery29
"Last year, Miami’s Bunny Yeager Studio opened, and the photographer was working on a collection of never-before-seen Page shots, called Bettie Page: Queen of Curves, which will be published in September to coincide with the 60th anniversary of their first photo session..." -The Daily Beast
“You Have To Own…Queen Of Curves is the application of Bunny’s philosophy and talent put to the test. Two titans of vintage photography –both models, both renowned by then– working together. I thought I’d seen what there was to see of Bettie Page, but the book is full of never before seen shots culled by Mason directly from Yeager’s archives. The curation is gorgeous, the layout is a mid-century minimalist homage, and there are over 250 pages of photos of all kinds. Petra’s work here is impeccable. The result is an astounding look at the confidence of two professionals in their prime. It’s an astounding look at the most iconic pin-up model ever, though the eyes of another, iconic, model.” –American Standard Time
"Wowza! Simultaneously nostalgic and playfully sexy, these prints-the outcome of th famed artist-muse pairing of photographer Yeager and model Page - are hallmarks of the pinup era." –Entertainment Weekly
“Bettie Page: Queen of Curves. Sun, sand and sexuality: Model Bettie Page and photographer Bunny Yeager were a match made in pinup heaven. Historian Petra Mason celebrates the unforgettable collaboration between the famous brunette with the bangs and Yeager…” –Miami Hearald
“Here to give you all the good, Bettie Page, a giant book of photographs featuring the famous pinup and Playboy model as seen through the ever-judicious lens of Bunny Yeager…Just a little something for you to keep on your Bettie Page table…” –UrbanDaddy
“Bettie Page Queen of Curves has captured the spirit of a woman who captured the essence of beauty in the middle of last century. The Page book particularly underscores Yeagar’s contribution to popular culture, reflecting and enhancing the apposite charms of the only woman who could be said to rival Marilyn Monroe for iconic, universal sex symbol status…her shots of Bettie Page say as much about the photographer as they do about the model.” –Issue Magazine
