The Pin-up Art Of Bill Ward
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Though he is best known for creating Torchy in the 1940s, Ward's strongest work was produced in the late 1950s and early 1960s with a Conte crayon, which allowed him to produce unparalleled textures. Ward drew extremely well-endowed women accentuated by tiny waists, playing to the multiple fetishes adorned in gloves, lingerie and heels. Editor Alex Chun has culled the best of Ward's Conte crayon pin-ups, including many of his infamous telephone girls, many of which have not seen print in almost half a century.
