THE PINUP GIRL ~ AMERICA'S VALENTINE
The Pinup Girl also known as the Pinup or cheesecake model may be glamour models, fashion models, actresses & Hollywood starlets. Vintage Pinups are a huge Pop Culture collectible. As they disappear & become Hard To Find, they make an excellent investment. Back in the day, the Pinups were meant to be Pinned-Up on a wall.

AMERICAN G.I. SWEETHEART PINUPS
The term Pinup was first attested to in the 1920s with Clara Bow and Mary Pickford as America's Pinup Sweethearts. However, the practice is documented back to the 1890s when the Gibson Girls were American Beauty Icons. During the 20th Century, especially WW1 and WW2, Pinup Art was popular as an uplifting positive way to promote many companies through Calendars, Matches, Lithograph Art and other Ephemera Giveaways.

VINTAGE ICONIC PINUPS
The pinup continued to grow in popularity and sophistication throughout the 1950’s. Marilyn Monroe was Earl Moran's favorite model before and after she became a movie star. Tom Kelly's Golden Dreams & A New Wrinkle nude Red Velvet Calendar's made Marilyn Monroe a household name! Numerous actresses throughout the last 75 years have posed for pinup and glamour artists. The modern Pinups are actually posters today. Farrah Fawcett brought it full circle with one of the most famous and popular Swimsuit posters during her Charlie's Angels era.

LITHOGRAPH HISTORY 101
Lithography is a type of printing process during which original works of art or photographs can be printed and reproduced, the final product is known as a lithograph. If the print quality of a lithograph is excellent and the production numbers are low, it may have significant value in the art and photo lithography world. FYI: A lithograph is not a type of paper.
