Photographing the Female Figure
Fawcett Publications, Inc., 1st edition 1957 (Fawcett Book 348)
Linnea Eleanor “Bunny” Yeager (1929-2014), model and photographer.
Well illustrated and informative ‘how-to’ book on photography featuring many glamour and ‘pin-up’ models of the 1950s, including Yeager herself and regular collaborator Betty Page (aka Bettie Page).
Soft cover. 144pp including b/w illustrations. 9.25 x 6.75 inches approx. (234mm x 169mm).
Covers a little rubbed and worn; vertical crease to centre of front cover; dust spots and marking especially to spine and front cover. Lightly knocked to lower corner of page-block, some cockling to top and bottom edges; pages a touch dusty in places and the occasional handling mark but generally clean throughout.
Overall, showing some wear from handling and poor storage but otherwise remaining a reasonably nice copy – surprisingly uncommon.
