Flirt! Volume One: The Art of Naughty
by sean Gallimore, Various
Art Fantastix--Carlos Cartagena and Sean Gallimore. The work of Cartagena is well-know to pin-up aficionados, and takes up the lion's share of pages here. Sultry airbrush work is his hallmark, highlighting his contemporary, sexy style, someone akin to the work of Jennifer Janesko. Cartegena has done several prints and the ones we've handled have been extremely popular, a salute to his appealing ladies. Sixty-two images by him are included, nearly all full-color and full-page. He also includes several retro-style tributes to the work of Gil Elvgren. The work of Gallimore is on the flip-side; these pages are replete with jungle girls, warrior maidens, super heroines and other unclad beauties. Thirty-one images, with lots of duotone work and mostly full-page. This publication honors the best and newest in the field of erotic pin-up art. The premiere issue is flip-book style, with each artist getting a cover and uninterrupted stream of images inside, plus a short biography.

Pin-Up Dreams: The Glamour Art of Rolf Armstrong
by Janet Dobson, Michael Wooldridge
The New York Times dubbed Armstrong the “Father of the Calendar Girl”
Rolf Armstrong’s luminous portraits of famous actresses and idealized girls-next-door made him one of the highest paid commercial artists in America. Widely considered the “Father of Pin-Up Artists,” his first calendar pin-up, created in 1919, defined the vision of feminine beauty for the next forty years. Today, the very same characteristics that defined Armstrong’s art in the first place—grace, vibrancy, and an indescribable lifelike quality—are attracting a growing number of modern art devotees everywhere. 
Pin-Up Dreams showcases 300 resplendent reproductions of the very best of Armstrong’s dream-girl images. This dramatic guide begins with the story of this renowned artist’s fascinating life and career. Then, dazzling full-color photographs showcase the wonderful work he created over his 50-year career—one that included over 200 magazine covers for such esteemed publications as the Saturday Evening Post, Colliers, Screenland and Photoplay. Later, he was best known for calendar art and was dubbed the “Father of the Calendar Girl” by The New York Times. 

For readers interested in vintage Americana and true American art, Pin-Up Dreams provides a treasure trove of lavish cultural and fashion history from one of the country’s legendary artists.
