The Glamorous Pin-up Art of Bill Ward

As you’ve probably noticed, most Friday features here on The Lingerie Addict are dedicated to photography.  But every once in awhile, I like to change it up my highlighting artists of a different sort.  In the past year or so, I’ve featured modern favorites like Neryl, Amano Jyaku, and Caitlin Shearer, but today I’m going wayyy back and paying tribute to the grandaddy of glamorous pin-ups, Bill Ward.

If you like what you see here, then check out the book, The Glamour Girls of Bill Ward.  As always, I’d love to hear what your favorite image is in the comments!

    My favorite is number 2. It features everything: stockings, nice panties and a bra with the intended shape for the era portrayed.

    I love them all – it's a must have volume! My fave is the mink stole stripper, so glam – so naughty!

    I'm undecided on a favorite, but how could any fan of either lingerie, burlesque or both *not* like these?

    Love them all Treacle but if forced to decide then probably the last one is my fave.

    I love them all! adorable. Have you ever considered doing African American Pinup Girls aka the Harlem Renaissance/cotton club theme? I was looking for something like that for my bath and body line. I also wanted to know if I could feature some of your drawings on my site giving credit to you off course. I’ve always loved this retro era. Thanks.
