1954 was an important year in the lives of Bettie Page and photographer Bunny Yeager. Page, a blossoming pin-up model of the day had relocated to Miami Beach, Florida and began working extensively with Yeager, who shot the model across the beaches and resorts of the city.

Now, for the first time, Rizzoli collects the photography of that year in Bettie Page: Queen of Curves. The book collects more than 250 photos of the pin-up model, all shot on Miami Beach, and many unseen by the public until this collection. Queen of Curves is an important and critical look into only some of the earliest photos of Ms. Page and Yeager's own work in the field. To this day, many of those photos remain as iconic as they did when they first published in the 1950s. Author Petra Mason, a scholar of Yeager's life and work, interviewed the artist extensively for this new photo book. Through Yeager's own voice, Mason shares the importance 1954 and the photographs. Yeager passed away in March of this year, but not before signing off on the final layouts of the book.

Bettie Page: Queen of Curves is available from Rizzoli and Amazon. Be sure to pick up Mason's other work on Yeager, Bunny Yeager's Darkroom and see more of Page's unpublished photographs here.
