Signed by Jim Silke and Lisa Marie Scott - 1st printing. This special hardcover edition is signed by Jim Silke and Lisa Marie Scott and is limited to a production run of only 300 copies. Jim Silke shares his hilarious first-person account of life as a 'pinup' artist-from the comic-strip vixens that influenced his youth, to his real-life adventures photographing Hollywood's most beautiful starlets and models, to his slaving over magical images of Bettie Page, Brigitte Bardot, and a host of other beauties. Lavishly illustrated with over 100 new images by Silke and classic 'girl artists' George Petty, Coby Whitmore, Enoch Bolles, Al Parker, Rolf Armstrong, and others. Pin-Up: The Illegitimate Art is a delightful, sharp, insightful look at the 'bedtime babies,' 'devil women,' and 'bare-naked ladies' that grace the walls-and hearts-of red-blooded lady lovers the world over. Silke is one of the few artists who could write this story. From his Grammy Award-winning stint as a music industry art director to his years as a magazine publisher, glamour photographer, screenwriter, and comic book artist, Silke's sensual artistic vision has made a distinct and lasting impact on contemporary culture. ?
