Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

French Postcards: An Album of Vintage Erotica

French Postcards: An Album of Vintage Erotica - Martin Stevens This is a great series of photographs about the first pin-up photos ever created. There are very nice historical explanations of how erotica changed with this new capability to mass produce photos. My ONLY complaint is several of the pictures were pixelated and obviously just taken off the Internet. The introduction says that all these photos are in the authors' collection, so why would he not get high res scans done? Other than the few pixelated images, the high resolution images are really gorgeous! Thank you to Susanna for gifting me this great book!
