Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Through his collection of photographs David Chapman traces the history and development of the genre from the classic finde-siecle statuesque pose of the first musclemen to the wasp-waisted boys of mid-century Hollywood. It offers differing concepts of male beauty from a time when legs were called limbs and sex was a base instinct. Here in one volume is the evolution of the male body beautiful — dreamy languid nudes, stunning athletes and vaudeville strongmen.

An essential chronicle of its time, David Chapman's introduction and commentary presents us with an insider's view of body art, both comprehensive and entertaining.

Synopsis:

The photohistory of the male nude pin-up from the classic fin-de-siecle statuesque pose of the first musclemen to 1940's wasp-waisted Hollywood boys.
