Taschen Explores 'The Art Of Pin-Up'

The only coffee table book you need to own

We all know that Taschen has an eye for the female body. In fact, it’s pretty much what the German publishing house is known for. So it should come as no surprise that their latest ‘sexy’ hardcover is an ode to the famed "Pin-Up" style of vintage photography. 

Over 400 pages, The Art Of Pin-Up (un)covers the drawings, paintings and pastels by many of the genre’s greatest artists. Featuring images sourced from their original material dating back as far as the 1920s, you can also expect to see in-depth profiles on the most famed contributors to the genre – including Alberto Vargas and Gil Elvgren, in addition to Esquire’s very own George Petty.
