I was somewhat dissappointed with this set of books. All these books are are a rehash of Dian Hanson's History of Men's Magazines which I already had. She even uses the same magazine covers in a smaller version of that set. If you have History of Men's Magazines I don't see the necessity of Pin-up Magazines. If you are a completist, go for it!!

This anthology goes way back to the early 1900, way before my time. The examples and wide spread sources from around the world shows a common human thread for beauty and lusty admiration of the female body. The past holds clues of present day values. Well put together.

Three volumes at a bargain price. Dian Hanson delivers an encyclopedic tour de force history of magazines for men. From their birth with the Twentieth Century through the decades until they withered under the onslaught of the internet, these volumes cover it all. We encounter the inevitable rise of "Playboy" and its myriads of antecedents and rivals. A goldmine of images and history, these volumes come highly recommended.

I love this boxed set, and have gotten two copies for a friend. Magnificent collection of kitschy graphics, including a very attractive slipcover for the boxed set, which actually has illustrations *inside* the box. They didn't skimp on really trying to produce an attractive set.
