If ever there were reason to believe in love at first sight, that reason would be Bettie Page. From the moment the first pinups of Bettie appeared, the world fell in love. Even now, a half-century after those first pictures were published, men desire her, women emulate her, and more and more people all over the world adore her. What did Bettie offer the camera that the other, more celebrated beauties of her time-including Marilyn, Brigitte, and Sophia-did not? Legendary pinup artist and entertainment historian Jim Silke dives into these tempting waters and offers his firsthand account of life behind the lens of the fifties pinup scene with his freshest book to date, Bettie Page Rules!
Combining fun and informative writing with his singular insight into the world of gorgeous dames, Silke delivers a tantalizing pictorial portrait of all the 1950s bombshells. But that's just the tip of the cheesecake! Bettie Page Rules!
is bursting at the seams with all-new pin-up paintings from Silke, capturing the fifties most gorgeous women in sizzling detail, not to mention an all-new selection of never-before-seen photos of Bettie, painstakingly gathered from private collections.
