Bettie Page was one of the most popular pin-ups of the 1950s. She first appeared as a Playmate in the pages of PLAYBOY in January, 1955 in a fetching yuletide photo shot by Bunny Yeager. At the end of the decade, she disappeared, but her legend continued to grow until, by the 1990s, she had become an icon.

BETTIE! : The Incomparable Bettie Page Archives of Irving Klaw is a very carefully curated collection of exquisitely reproduced photographs. Never before have so many of Klaw's photographs been published in a single book. The photographs include some of the most iconic photographs ever taken of Bettie as well as some never before published photographs of the legendary 1950's pinup queen.The photographer, Irving Klaw, was noted as one of America's first fetish photographers and Bettie as America's first famous bondage model. From 1952 through 1958 the pair worked together weekly in Irving's New York studio. Irving was played by Chris Bauer opposite Gretchen Mol in the 2005 film, "The Notorious Bettie Page". The Kefauver Hearings of the Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency in 1957 marked the beginning of the end of Irving's mail-order photography business in New York. The investigation tried to link pornography to juvenile delinquency. The McCarthy-style hearings branded Irving as a degenerate pornographer and ushered in a new wave of media censorship. Bettie was also summoned to the hearings but was never called to testify (parts of the hearings are recreated in the film The Notorious Bettie Page). She retired from modeling soon afterwards. Because of the political, social and legal pressures he faced, Irving closed his storefront business and burned many of his negatives. It is estimated that more than 80% of the negatives were destroyed. However, his sister Paula secretly kept some of the better images, which are now reproduced like never before in this exclusive book.

This joint biography of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford follows Hollywood's most epic rivalry throughout their careers. They only worked together once, in the classic spine-chiller "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane" and their violent hatred of each other as rival sisters was no act. In real life they fought over as many man as they did film roles. The story of these two dueling divas is hilarious, monstrous, and tragic, and Shaun Considine’s account of it is exhaustive, explosive, and unsparing. “Rip-roaring. A definite ten.” - New York Magazine.

For ten years Kathryn Sermak was at Bette Davis's side--first as an employee, and then as her closest friend--and in Miss D and Me she tells the story of the great star's harrowing but inspiring final years, a story fans have been waiting decades to hear. Miss D and Me is a story of two powerful women, one at the end of her life and the other at the beginning. As Bette Davis aged she was looking for an assistant, but she found something more than that in Kathryn: a loyal and loving buddy, a co-conspirator in her jokes and schemes, and a competent assistant whom she trained never to miss a detail. But Miss D had strict rules for Kathryn about everything from how to eat a salad to how to wear her hair...even the spelling of Kathryn's name was changed (adding the "y") per Miss D's request. Throughout their time together, the two grew incredibly close, and Kathryn had a front-row seat to the larger-than-life Davis's career renaissance in her later years, as well as to the humiliating public betrayal that nearly killed Miss D. The frame of this story is a four-day road trip Kathryn and Davis took from Biarritz to Paris, during which they disentangled their ferocious dependency. Miss D and Me is a window into the world of the unique and formidable Bette Davis, told by the person who perhaps knew her best of all.
