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, as well as interesting sections on glamour stars like Sophia Loren, Jayne Mansfield and Marilyn.
