Serious, yet accessible, featuring the elegant and modern aesthetic PIN-UP’s readers have come to expect, there is no comparable source available for such a stunning array of contemporary design talent collected in one place. It is indispensable to all lovers of today’s brightest architectural and design ideas.

Women, Outdoor Advertising and Public Policy
Author: Lauren Rosewarne
Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing
Category: Social Science
View: 5884Despite decades of feminist awareness and activism, women continue to be portrayed in outdoor advertising in a limited and sexist manner. The fact that in public space audiences are exposed to such images without choice, renders the issue an important public policy concern. Sex in Public utilises a large outdoor advertising data collection to examine the contemporary outdoor advertising landscape, documenting the routine portrayal of women as thin, white, young and idle. This book examines why such portrayals are concerning for feminists as well as for public policy, and explores the advertising self-regulation systems that facilitate the display of such images. This book criticises sexist outdoor advertising as a form of sexual harassment given that imagery often bearing very strong semblance to pin-ups which would be outlawed in a workplace are readily displayed in public space, reflecting a troublesome public policy double standard. Understanding sexist outdoor advertising as a form of sexual harassment is a new framework that Sex in Public offers to understand, critique and condemn such images.

The Insider's Guide to Roller Derby
Author: Jennifer Barbee,Alex Cohen
Category: Sports & Recreation
View: 9827When most Americans hear the words “roller derby today, they think of the kitschy sport once popular on weekend television during the seventies and eighties. Originally an endurance competition where skaters traveled the equivalent of a trip between Los Angeles and New York, derby gradually evolved into a violent contact sport often involving fake fighting. But after nearly dying out in the nineties, derby has been making a comeback. From a mere handful of leagues in the United States just a few years ago, there are now more than 17,000 skaters in more than 400 leagues around the world, with hundreds of thousands of die-hard fans. Down and Derby will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the sport. Written by veteran skaters as both a history and a how-to, Down and Derby is a brassy celebration of every aspect of the sport, from its origins in the late 1800s, to the rules of a modern bout, to the science of picking an alias, to the many ways you can get involved off skates. Informative, entertaining, and executed with the same tough, sassy, DIY attitude — leavened with plenty of humor — that the sport is known for, Down and Derby is the first and last book on derby youll ever need.

View: 2036Bombshell is a feminist nuclear thriller set twenty-five years after the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, in which an alienated young Russian woman born in its shadow undertakes a road trip across the U.S., waging a guerrilla war against the nuclear industry and leaving in her wake a trail of destruction and assassinations. Obsessed with would-be Warhol assassin Valerie Solanas, Varyushka Cash recreates her atomic past through escalating violence and her one true goal: an assault on the Indian Point nuclear plant on the bank of the Hudson River. All along she is relentlessly pursued by the CIA, eager to capture Varyushka on charges of domestic terrorism. The cat-and-mouse chase leads to a final showdown in a decimated and irradiated New York, there on the cusp of a frightening new future. The initial draft of Bombshell was completed five months before the Fukushima catastrophe, written from the author’s morbid suspicion that the twenty-fifth anniversary of catastrophe at Chernobyl, Pripyat, and beyond would be marked by an echo in the present, shadowed by the real threat present in our unguarded and deteriorating nuclear facilities. Bombshell is a combustible and commercial step forward by one of our most creative and intellectual writers today.

View: 7398Pinups: Past and Present is a curated reference survey of the state of pinup art among contemporary graphic artists, tattooists, and cartoonists. With more than 100 artists from the United States, Europe, Australia, Japan, and China included, this collection offers an unrivaled look at every different direction pin-up art design has taken since the heady days of Bettie Page. More than 200 images from the best practitioners betray the influences of the greats, such as Gil Elvgren and Olivia De Berardinis, but also show new trends, including a revival in 1980s-influenced line work in the vein of Patrick Nagel, and of biomech-influenced approaches. Every image is accompanied by a caption detailing the artist, name of work, and major influences, making this an invaluable source of information and inspiration for all graphic artists and cartoonists in the genre. In the past, pinup women were considered to be a low bar for artists and were generally taboo in the art community. The current appeal of old pinup art is the unpretentious, often naive, and joyful whimsy that celebrates the sensuality of the women depicted. Whether they're real or imaginary, pinup women are a celebration of feminine sexuality. The sheer breadth and span of pinup art today is amazing and every major genre is represented within, including: Classic American Sci-Fi and Fantasy Cartoon and Comic Book Hot Rod Neo-Surreal Pinups: Past and Present features the best contemporary artists, such as Enric Badia Romero, Carlos Cartagena, Fiona Stephenson, Chris Wahl, ONEQ, David Nakayama, Andrew Hickinbottom, Zach Gardia, Ben Tan, Marta Nael, Jan Meininghaus, David Vincente, Screaming Demons, Syd Brak, Loopydave, Natalie Shau, Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Elias Chatzoudis, and many more. For the pinup aficionado and artist, this non-stop, eye-popping book is an essential source of inspiration.
