5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, 29 Mar. 2010
Beautiful record of the span and range of Vargas' work from the 20s to the 70s. Many of the images contained are "studies" - versions of some of the poses that went on to be Varga Girl pin-ups, but as the book says, a lot of these studies are more beautiful than then versions used in the magazine. This book shows very clearly how Vargas perfected his Art very early on in his life, any while he never lost it, to which his Legacy pieces are testament, he was forced to compromise it heavily for both Esquire and Playboy. His best work by far is that which was removed from his work for the magazines which made him famous.
