In 1952, Jack Faragasso, a young art student, hired a model for a photo shoot. The model was Bettie Page before her career took off to the heights of being labeled “The Queen of Pin Ups”. Here, for the first time ever, are those photographs from that afternoon session. Outside of a few of the images used as reference for paperback book covers, these pictures have never been seen before. Faragasso would go on to serve as teacher at the prestigious Art Students League of New York and also paint 100’s of paperback covers, mostly in the science fiction and gothic romance genres.

Jack Faragasso, a young art student, hired a model for a photo shoot. The model was Bettie Page before her career took off to the heights of being labeled "The Queen of Pin Ups." Here, for the first time ever, are those photographs from that afternoon session. Outside of a few of the images used as reference for paperback book covers, these pictures of the very famous pin-up Bettie Page,   have never been seen before. Faragasso would go on to serve as teacher at the prestigious Art Students League of New York and also paint 100's of paperback covers, mostly in the science fiction and gothic romance genres. 

This 8 1/2 x 11 inch book contains the never before seen of published early photographs of cult figure Bettie Page by Artist Jack Faragasso. Mr. Faragasso describes how as a young art student in Mr. Frank Reilly's class at the Art Students League of New York was taught photography as well as drawing and painting, for in the early fifties illustration was one of the few outlets for painting realistic images and they were done mainly with the help of photographs. 


Mr. Faragasso describes the hectic and exciting days at the Art Students League as well as New York City in the early fifties. It was while a student in Mr. Reilly's class that he photographed Bettie Page for figure studies and paperback book covers, some of which are shown in this book. Today the photographs of Ms. Page stand as fine art in themselves.
