In the world of contemporary pin-up art, few artists can capture the sexy essence of a gorgeous woman as well and as wonderfully as Jim Silke. For years Silke's signature luscious paintings and sensuous drawings have delighted the hearts and eyes of everyone who appreciates the beauty and grace of the female form, as portrayed in his other bestselling art books, including Bettie Page, Queen of Hearts and Pin-Up: The Illegitimate Art.

This time, the pin-up master strips his subjects of dress and other distractions to better reveal the delicious details that are usually hidden from admiring eyes. And, as fans have come to expect from the gentleman genius behind the brush, Silke adorns his intoxicating imagery with sage insight and cunning wit, as he recounts his long and exceedingly happy career flirting with fine art and foxy women.
