Description

    Bettie Page: The Life of a Pin-Up Legend by Karen Essex and James L. Swanson (General Publishing Group, 1996). Autographed Hardcover Book (288 Pages, 9.5" X 11.25"). Bad Girl.
    Featuring an amazing autobiography of legendary pin-up model Bettie Page, who challenged conservative 1950s norms, became one of Playboy's most popular centerfolds, and cultivated a cult underground following. This book, penned by Karen Essex, the only journalist who was ever granted a meeting with the reclusive Page, chronicles Page's career and life with over 500 photos packed in between 288 pages. An unrestored hardcover book with bright color and a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as slight edge wear, small creases, or cuts in the dust jacket. The book is signed "Bettie Page." Heritage Auctions believes the signature to be authentic, but know before bidding that no Certificate of Authenticity is provided. Please see full-color, enlargeable image above for more details. Very Fine+.
