He walked to school in the snow, uphill both ways.
Milk was 10 cents.
And Bettie Page was getting naked on beaches.
He took the good with the bad...
Here to give you all the good, Bettie Page: Queen of Curves, a giant book of photographs featuring the famous pinup and Playboy model as seen through the ever-judicious lens of Bunny Yeager, now available.
The pair started working together in 1954. Bunny took hundreds of photos of Bettie, including their most famous work of Bettie donning a Santa hat (only a Santa hat) while hanging an ornament on a tree.
So that’s in here. And a couple hundred other photos like it. Many of them previously unseen.
Sometimes she’s wearing a bikini while driving a bumper car. Sometimes she’s wearing a leopard-print one-piece while hanging from a tree with a knife in her mouth. But most of the time she’s naked and petting cheetahs or whatever.
Just a little something for you to keep on your Bettie Page table this fall.
Who puts coffee on those things anyway...
