I've always liked the pinup girl artwork of the 40's and 50's. As mentioned in another review, the images of this time were tantalising, tittilating, but also tasteful. Not at all vulgar. Until recently I did not really know the artists names, but I did get to know two artists names, Antonio Vargas, whose picture 'Jeanne' reminded me of a young Nicole Kidman, and Gil Elvgren. I bought this book on a chance, not really sure how good the quality of the images would be and to be honest, at the price I wasn't expecting anything spectacular.
What arrived though was a beautifully bound book, with many images printed on glossy high quality paper. The book itself is well bound with a nice eye catching cover painting. It seems quite sturdy, the weight of the book suggesting this is not cheaply made.
As has been mentioned by other reviews, one or two images haven't been as sharply reproduced as others, but there's no really bad sections, just some are a little blurry, this might be due to the source material. I'm perfectly happy with this books. While these are paintings, I found out recently on of all things Pawn Stars, that if these had been photographs during the time, many states might have treated the material as pornography, but since it was painted it was art.
