1000 Pin-Up Girls HC (2016 Taschen) Bibliotheca Universalis Edition comic books
1st printing. By Peter Driben. "Girls, Gags & Giggles," ran publisher Robert Harrison's recipe for dishing up Pin-up to the American male. While other magazines delivered the girl next door, Harrison's publications banked on bad girls in satin and leather, fishnet stockings, and six-inch heels performing slapstick stunts straight from the burlesque stage. Harrison lured his readers in with vibrantly painted covers by top Pin-up artists Earl Moran, Billy DeVorss and, most famously, Peter Driben. This Bibliotheca Universalis edition celebrates this eye-catching candy with every single cover from Beauty Parade, Wink, Titter, Eyeful, Flirt, and Whisper from 1942 to 1955, as well as interior spreads, featuring, among others, a budding Bettie Page. Hardcover, 6-in. x 8-in., 544 pages, full color. Cover price $19.99.
