I have a weakness for pin-ups, and I adore the style of this artist. Took me a while to find a book, but definitely worth the price of admission. Recommended for anyone who enjoys classical pinup.

I love Love Love this book and it inspired me awhile back to start a "pin up" style kick of my own for a phase.
