I had been burned by pin-up books before and was apprehensive about this one. What I wanted was a book of portraits.

I had been burned by pin-up books before and was apprehensive about this one. Pin-up portraits are gorgeous and its not necessarily easy to find the classy, vintage ones. A couple books that I had bought before were mostly a history of. This book was perfect!

I've pretty much stopped collecting books because they've taken over my house. The books would be stacked all over the house until I could buy a nice new book shelf. I would find a suitable book shelf and fill it up almost immediately with the stacks, and then the cycle would begin all over again. If you are a book lover like I am, you know the routine. But after completing a court-approved 12-Step Program, I have started to wean myself off of book collecting. I now only buy spectacularly special books and I stash them in the closet and drape clothing over them so my wife doesn't discover them until after the statute of limitations has expired.

The Taschen XL series is my main source of ongoing addiction. Taschen does two or three new volumes each year. These things are just so amazingly ambitious and beautiful they cannot be ignored. I believe I have them all--except for "Tom of Finland" (I may even buy that one some day; but my wife might be a little concerned when she discovers that one stashed in the closet !!).

If you haven't seen one of the Taschen XL's, you are in for a shock: they really are HUGE. You'll almost certainly have to display them horizontally on your bookshelf. But the size gives them a certain majestic gravitas that distinguishes them from other "coffee table"-type books. These edifices represent a commitment by you to the subject. They are more akin to a piece of furniture or a small vehicle than a book. But if the subject matter is of interest to you, or if you merely love spectacular books which are pieces of art in their own right, you will love the Taschen XL's.

What title could possibly be of more appeal than pin-up art? It is a pure celebration of the female form--even women will enjoy this tasteful selection. The printing here is color-true spectacular, and there are countless sophisticated flourishes throughout: cloth-covered hardbound (rare, nowadays); built-in book-marker ribbon; thick-paper sectional dividers with tipped-in plates; several fold-out pages; an informative section of lesser-known artists at the end; and a nice carry/storage box. You will not be disappointed. Taschen does typically print a lot of these books, but once they sell out, the price on this will go stratospheric and you will regret not buying it. They may do a re-print, but it will be a smaller version that is not nearly as appealing. You want to get this edition, and you want to get it now.

Yes, there will be overlap with your copy of "The Art of Pin-Up" from a few years ago, and with your Gil Elvgren volume, both from Taschen. But this massive volume has enough additional content to justify the purchase. Just think of this as "re-mastered" pin-up art with many additional bonus tracks. Dian Hanson curated this, and she has an exquisite eye. She's pretty much the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval on anything she touches in her realm as she keeps it ultra-classy. You'll flip through the pages of this and it will immediately become a cherished family treasure.

I'm hoping that our next house can be a little bigger--at least big enough to accommodate some additional huge book shelves to hold these Taschen XL's that they keep coming up with. That way I can take them out of the closet and show them off (except for Tom of Finland !!). These things are gorgeous monstrosities!! Their size is freakish, their weight unmanageable, their value historic!!

One of the true great art books of all time. Pin-up art is classic art which deserves the respect of the art world, this book has elevated it to a position where it deserves to be. The color reproduction is just amazing and the quality work on this book will result in some awards at the end of the year. This is the best art book buy I have ever made. A good companion to this book is the "Great American Pin Up " which was done about 25 years ago. That book was legend and still is. But in 2014 this book is truly king. My highest recommendation for hours and and hours of being simply amazed.

I collect all sorts of Pin-up art books and I'm very glad that I bought this one. Great packaging and even a better book, well worth the price.

There are few superlatives left that have not been used to describe this best of the best collection.Taschen's
resident queen of sex,Dian Hanson,has surpassed her previous efforts. If you have a serious interest in the
subject matter,this incredible....production is absolutely essential.No previous history of the pin-up genre
BEGINS to approach the achievement that this massive tome represents. No catalog description,including that
of the publisher, can possibly convey the astonishingly gorgeous achievement that IS this stunning book.
It's actually exhausting to try to convey in words the reaction one feels when at first seeing this book "in the
flesh".One often hears that such and such is the "last word" on a subject. This just might be the ultimate
expression of the awe and enchantment that was the world of the American pin-up. Our congratulation
to the Taschen production team and most especially to Ms. Hanson, for their truly Herculean efforts in
creating what can only be described as a ( at the risk of understating the case) masterpiece of 21st
Century publishing.The digital world will certainly have to go some to catch up. SIX STARS.

this book came today and OMG! It's huge and it's incredible, the single best source I've seen for Pinup artists.
