I wanted this book for my birthday (which was on the 12th), but i never got it. So i decided to buy this as a birthday treat.
The book came to my parent's doorstep on Monday evening, with the delivery man unable to pronounce my first name; but none the less, the book had arrived.
Unlike the pin up girls of today; the pin up girls from other eras in this book look a lot more innocent and playful (do bare in mind, some of the pin up piece do contain nudity; some are tasteful) and that what i love about this.
The book is pretty big, and it'll be very useful for me as an artist as i love creating tasteful pieces.
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.
