Hail the male pin-up. From Petra Mason — the author of Bettie Page and Bunny Yeager’s Darkroom — comes Beefcake, a compilation of male nudes and semi-nudes from the pages of vintage magazines of men for men.
Many of the studs featured are unseen works from the field’s most influential lensmen, among them Bruce of Los Angeles, Don Whitman, Kovert of Hollywood, and Western Photography Guild. Campy themes include Swords & Sandals, Dare Devils, Locker Room, Demi Gods, and Lonely Sailor. Need we say more?
