{     Bill Ward, King of the Glamour Girls     }    

http://www.crowndozen.com/main/archives/upload/2006/07/bill_ward-thumb.jpg You probably have never heard of Bill Ward, but likely you have seen some of his illustrations, published in those old 'dirty magazines' your father bought in the 60s and 70s and hid away in the basement... and we all know what you did with those 'dirty magazines', right before you found the guts to actually buy your own porn mags... Well, if you feel rightful sentimental (Your first time is always unforgettable, right? Even if it does no include any other person in the picture...), read on: those golden days may just be a trip to your local art bookstore away! Bill Ward is rightfully crowned as the King of Glamour Girls since he has been drawing pin-ups for over 50 years of his life, successfully making of his sexy illustration his full time job even in times when these were not very accepted by the general public. He started drawing "curvy distractions"for his own camerades while a soldier in WWII and he has never stopped until his death in 1998. Ward is actually some sort of hero of men sexual universe, having contributed likely more than anyone else to the creation of the world of pin-ups and sex illustration. So this was history. What about the present? It is pretty lucky if you are into Ward's girls! Taschen (who else?) has collected in a huge book hundreds of his sexiest illustrations: you almost have too many babes to be titillaed by! His exagerately busty, scantly dressed, overly high heels clad, always available girls are pictured in every possible costume (an ante litteram cat woman zipped up in a latex body suit and an almost innocent 50s housewife well revealing her underwear are just a couple), posture and situation. Just imagine the most appealing (pretty unrealistic, but we all are allowed to work with our imagination, no?) setting an often ugly, bald man could find himself into with a bombshell and you are likely to find it this book: there is something for all tastes, most soft fetishes included! The book is huge: 344 heavy pages in a 10 x 13 inches format. Yet, it is sold at the affordable price of 50 USD or 40 Euros. Definitely worth if these provocative retro girlies spread their charme on you... and I really do not know how you could not be affected by their spell! As the editor Eric Knoll rightfully puts it, this is "the best eye candy money can buy"...
