Making waves : swimsuits and the undressing of America by Lena Lenček( Book )
6 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 392 libraries worldwide
The revealing story of how skin went public in America. The swimsuit--more than any other type of clothing--is an item of fantasy and a challenge to daring fashion designers. Making Waves explores every aspect of the design and manufacture of swimwear and delves into the psychological and social roots of swimsuit styles and their appeal. Illustrated with over a hundred photographs, lithographs and drawings, this book chronicles the evolution of swimsuits from the nineteenth century to the present day. The contemporary and historical illustrations include provocative swimwear advertisements featuring the sexy physiques of Hollywood stars Marilyn Monroe, James Garner and Ronald Reagan; swimsuit pinups by Alberto Varga and George Petty; and, collected in a book for the first time, a selection of swimsuit photographs from Sports Illustrated's annual tribute to the female form.--From publisher description
