This is the best pictoral essay book that I own. 1,000 Nudes is a journey through time, from 1850 to 1940. The nude and erotic photography ranges from "artistic" to silly to obscene, but it is all fascinating and interesting. The women are all more gorgeous than the [imitation], airbrushed porn of today. Hate to break it to ya guys...most women today look like this!
Vintage porn always fascinates me because it is so sneaky and ignorant of it's own innocence. This was before there was a big porn "industry" so a lot of these photos actually have a heart and soul. You can tell the models would love for you to join them!

Vintage Face: Period Looks from the 20s, 30s, 40s,&hellip by Angela Bjork
2.0 out of 5 stars Dosen't hit the mark, Feb. 13 2003
All of Ms. Turudich's other books are quite good, but this book just seems as though it was a good idea that didn't transfer right to paper. All the makeup "styles" are basically just the same style over and over, with a few colour changes. There are some interesting factoids about HOW the makeup was worn and applied during each decade, and the "dangerous" vintage recepies are also interesting to read. If you must have this book, buy it used. Or better yet, do as another reviewer said and invest in classic movies.
The Bombshell Manual of Style by Laren Stover
Had this book been written in novel-form I would have given it 5 stars. BUT the authoress takes herself too seriously and can be a little cruel at times. She says redheads can't be bombshells because the colour red is mostly associated with clowns. Is she serious? Aren't bomb-blasts usually a firey red colour? If this book were more self-mocking I would have enjoyed it.
