Dean Yeagle is one of my favorite pin-up artists, and this generous collection is one of his best. The work is probably about 95% pin-up art, but we get some variety with early commercial work he did, and less cartoonish nude model drawings. The meat of this book, of course, is the pin-up art, and primarily the Mandy section. Mandy, of course, is Yeagle's classic young nymph, probably in her very early twenties and thus in the spring of her life. She is unbelievably sexy, all the more so because she is so entirely innocent. We also get some great material that he did for Playboy. What I love about his art is that it manages to be completely hot while also staying entirely good-natured. There is nothing sleazy on display here. Yeagle merely loves the female form and celebrates it in his own way. In that way, it is very much like the work of early masters like Elvgren.
Best of all, the presentation is fantastic. The book has a solid hardcover binding, and the gorgeous full-color art is presented on high-quality glossy paper.
There is nothing to hate on here. Get it if you appreciate pin-up art at all.
