The Pin-up Files :: Hundreds of classic and modern drawings of glamorous and beautiful women. Also includes artist bios, notes on many of the images, and a great list of links to other sites. I find it interesting to see how our idea of what is erotic or beautiful have changed (and remained the same) from the '40's to today. This site contains some material which might be considered of an adult nature. Viewer discretion is advised.

Thanks, anastasiav. I think there was a previous MeFi thread about another site featuring him, but I say, don't miss Art Frahm and his bizarre, um, specialty situation. This one is a great exemplar for the absurdities of his genre - the air is wooshing up so powerfully as to lift her multiple skirts, yet her panties are so incredibly dense as to resist this upward thrust of air and plummet to the floor in an instant. Ridiculicious!

Or maybe her panties were already around her ankles when she stepped out of the lift?

This is so cool. Some of my favourite artists are represented, along with a whole bunch of others to enjoy.

But some are a bit racy. I can smell the old copies of Penthouse now...

Supernice link, ta.

None, however, from this guy, who is another one of my favourites. (apologies for the poorly-sourced link but I'm at work)

Another good link. Keep it up!

The use of celery in many Art Frahms pictures is really delightfully strange.

Time to reprise Lileks' gem: "Art Frahm: a study of the effects of celery on loose elastic.

Yep, that's the one, spleen; the link got messed up though, it's here. And here's the thread about it.

I think this one is very classy, and much more sexy that most of the others, classic or contemporary.

Nice. I'd seen this before, but forgot to bookmark it.

Though it's often overwhelmed, there's another very extensive pinup site out there.

If you don't mind really, really NSFW stuff, you may wanna check this out, too. (Via Fleshbot. Among the models: Masuimi Max, Dee Tran, Aria Giovanni.)
