Blending the style of the past with the women of the present, this book is a first-of-its-kind celebration of modern black
pin-up beauty. Black pin-ups existed during the “Golden Age of Pin-ups,” but like other black artists of the time, they
often did not receive the same attention as their white contemporaries. Although still rare, modern black pin-upmodels
are getting more attention thanks tomodels and photographers who understand that pin-up has evolved to include all
backgrounds and ethnicities.This new book shines the spotlight on ten of today’s best pin-up photographers and their
work with over 50 of today’s most beautiful black pin-up models. With images ranging from classic pin-up glamour
to retro-inspired fetish photography, this collection of works shows the diversity of flavors found in contemporary
black pin-up culture.
