1000s of diverse titles published since 1974
Pin-ups are a classic American art form that have enthralled several generations since first gaining widespread popularity in the 1920s. Today, internationally acclaimed photographer Celeste Giuliano has developed a style of photography that masterfully pays homage to the sweet and sexy look of the classic pin-up girl illustrations from WWII America. With a focus on details, authenticity, lighting, studio techniques, and poses, she has made a career of transforming everyday women into pin-up queens and making both men and women alike fall in love with their classic beauty all over again. In this, her first definitive collection, Celeste reminds us why men “pinned up” these lovely ladies and why their timeless beauty is still as sexy as ever. Each of the 130 portraits takes you back to the time when a flirtatious smile or a peek at a garter was what made the girl next door the ultimate bombshell.
