FAREWELL, DON
Don Whitney passed away on 9-Jul-98. The space he left behind is filled with great memories, and I'm glad he shared some of them with all of us (including his rare color photos) on pp. 74-81 of Bettie's official biography. Don, we miss you.

Bettie Page, The Life of a Pin-Up Legend

Clearly the book to start with, this is Bettie's official biography as she prefers it to be told, concentrating on showing Bettie in all her glory. Richly illustrated with many photos you can't find anywhere else.

288 pages. Both the 1996 hardcover and 1998 softcover editions are out of print. If you find one, snap it up.

Let Them Eat Cheesecake, the Art of Olivia

Crackers in Bed
"Crackers in Bed" by Olivia
While this book doesn't concentrate solely on Bettie, many exquisite paintings of Bettie are represented in this collection of Olivia De Berardinis' amazing artwork. One of them, Crackers in Bed, was the original inspiration for this web page back in 1994! Features Olivia's polished airbrush work, and her looser working drawings are shown as well, including sketches of Bettie.

Hardcover 112 pp.

Bettie Page, Queen of Hearts

This fun book put together by artist Jim Silke explores Bettie's influence on popular culture. Includes photos of Bettie, as well as artists' representations of Bettie commissioned especially for this book.

Softcover 96 pp. Color. 1996

Klaw Collection cover
Movie Star News presents The Irving Klaw Classic Collection

What's this, a catalog in the book section? This isn't "just a catalog." Movie Star News has put together this compendium of 1950s pinup photos from the Klaw Studio, dedicated to the memory of photographer Paula Klaw. There's thumbnails of about 1,300 Bettie Page shots plus another 5,400 of other Klaw models including Lily St.Cyr and Tempest Storm. Make sure to request the Irving Klaw Classic Collection catalog so you get the right one. It's a tremendous amount of material for just $5.

Bettie Page Confidential

Bottom line: 100 photos of Bettie mostly by Bunny Yeager. A half dozen by Klaw. Sure, there's a forward by Buck Henry, there's a biography with no details past 1957 and Bunny shares her remembrances... but I don't think you'll read it for the articles!

Softcover 128 pp. B&W. 1994

Buy it here!
The Real Bettie Page: The Truth About the Queen of the Pinups

Bettie's definitive unauthorized biography. Unlike the lavish Bettie Page, The Life of a Pin-Up Legend this book doesn't gloss over the parts that Bettie isn't proud of. While there's not many pictures, The Real Bettie Page does have the distinction of having the most recent picture of Bettie I've seen -- too bad it's a mug shot.

Hardcover 240 pp. 1997

Buy it here!
Betty Page: Queen of Pin-up

B&W and color photos of Bettie from Irving & Paula Klaw, Art Amsie, Bunny Yeager, Robert Harrison magazine, and notorious camera club photos. I've heard whispers that some of these pictures were published without permission.

Text in English, German, & French. 8 1/2" x 12".

Softcover 77 pp. 1995
