Pin-Ups Night and Day

Pin-Ups Night and Day

Detachables cards

Featuring a peep-hole cover, this collection of 80 detachable, rare vintage pin-up postcards with humorous quotes showcases a range of provocative poses that evoke with nostalgia the 1940s and ’50s. This gift edition will beguile a new generation with flirtatious representations of femininity from the 1940s and ’50s. Postcards of irresistible pin-up models bring teasing frivolity to a range of everyday situations, organized thematically and animated by sassy quotes from celebrities ranging from Mae West and Marilyn Monroe to Madonna and Beyoncé. From sun-kissed beauties at the beach to ski bunnies hitting the slopes, bedside nurses ready to take your temperature to scantily clad runaways, rakish shipmates to not-so-conscientious secretaries, these smiling cuties are ready for fun. Representations of women who embrace their sexuality —flirtatious but never vulgar— have been around since the late nineteenth century, but the pin-up genre skyrocketed into popularity during World War II. The penny arcade trading cards —originally viewed on a peep-show style reel and reproduced here as detachable postcards— feature both established pin-up artists and those waiting to be rediscovered.
