Compiled from the archives of the classic girlie magazines "Fiesta" and "Knave", this title features 300 photographs. The models display a playful, naive innocence. A series of four picture books, compiled from the archives of the classic girlie magazines, "Fiesta" and "Knave", which celebrates an age when glamour photography strove more for artistic ideals and risque titillation than the sexually explicit top shelf titles of today. Statuesque models of the 1950s adopted the poses of Greek goddesses, in elaborately styled sets, while their equivalents from the Swinging Sixties displayed a more playful, almost naive innocence. A decade later, the pin-ups of the 1970s, invariably shot in luscious colour and sumptuous sets, offered a more seductive appeal, while the glamour girls of the 1980s became more sexually suggestive in their poses and attire - or lack of it. The bevy of beauties that graces the pages of these four books illustrates the changing faces - and bodies - of the glamour model over four decades, from the demure to the titillating, the seductive to the steamy, the erotic to the raunchy.show more
