The late Bunny Yeager was a pinup model and photographer as well as contemporary of the great Bettie Page. And from her extensive archives, gathered into the pages of Bettie Page: Queen of Curves, are not only many of her best known and revered images, but also many never-before-seen photos. Yeager’s photography career was made when her photograph of Bettie Page made it to Playboy, and she’d go on to shoot many big names, including Marilyn Monroe. Compiled by Petra Mason, a cultural historian and total pro on the life and times of Bunny Yeager, Bettie Page: Queen of Curves includes 250 photographs and extensive input gathered from interviews with Ms. Yeager herself. There’s also a comprehensive chronicle of Miami Beach in 1954 that put Bettie Page on the map, and those little bangs on fetish models for decades to come. Rizzoli’s Bettie Page: Queen of Curves is available for $50 on backorder for the most extensive text on Bettie Page to date.
