Descripción del producto
"More than 250 previously unpublished photos by Ms.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
Reseña del editor
A treasure trove of never-before-seen playfully erotic photos of legendary pinup girl and style icon Bettie Page, from cult pinup photographer Bunny Yeager. Bunny Yeager has long been credited for capturing Bettie Page's true nature-her flirtatious and playfully erotic side-in classic pinup images that continue to influence photography and fashion today. This collection, culled from Yeager's extensive archive, features her most iconic shots of the legendary Bettie as well as never-before-seen images, including many nudes, which by all reports is how Bettie was most comfortable. Yeager was a young pinup photographer in 1955 when she hit the jackpot with her shot of Bettie scantily clad in a Santa hat, which sold instantly to the fledgling Playboy magazine. It was the beginning of a long collaboration between the two women, and Yeager's photographs of Bettie have now been featured on more magazine covers than those of her contemporary, Marilyn Monroe. This glamorous book gathers more than two hundred lens-fogging photographs of Bettie embodying the naughty girl-next-door eroticism of pin-up culture, with such playful chapters as: Jungle Land, Nutty Cheesecake, Sweet and Savage, and She Devil. A fun and sexy volume, this is the most comprehensive book on Bettie Page to date.Ver Descripción del producto

This is not a complete collection of Bunny Yeager's photographs of Bettie, but it is the biggest single collection I've thus far seen in one volume. I have a lot of books about Bettie and a lot of books about retro pin-up photography in general, and I HIGHLY recommend this one. The colorized photos mentioned by some are a bit amateurish by today's standards, but, giving props to the editors, they chose to reproduce the way these photos were colorized back in the 1950's, not how we'd do it today, so, they look like they did when new. I have no issues with that. Besides, 98% of the photos in the book are B/W anyway, so it's not a distraction.
There are some variations of some shoots in here I've not seen before, a lot of the standard classic shots, and some that are really out there and were obviously just taken for fun or were bloopers. What you come away with, here, is a darned complete collection of Bettie in her more "natural" beauty state, with photos taken by Bunny, who was a spectacular photographer as well as a model herself. This is a large format book, so you'll see a lot of the photos much bigger than you've ever seen them before, and the clarity and quality of the photos themselves really shines through.
Unlike Irving Klaw, Bunny Yeager was a photographer as opposed to a guy who was taking pictures and churning them out as fast as he could. There is a huge difference. I HIGHLY recommend getting the large format book of Klaw's photos of Bettie as well, as these two books go together magnificently, but having them side-by-side really illustrates how fantastic the Bunny Yeager photo shoots were. Buy this one, you will NOT regret it!
Great photos and paper quality.
It was gift. He was surprised.
