Great women’s fashion editorial from the early 1960’s. I love the clean lighting and simple composition of the large flowers and the models. It reminds me of the early fashion photographs by Irving Penn and Richard Avedon. I wish I knew who the photographer was.

Great old Christian Dior stockings ad. I love the illustration!

I found this amazing Al Moore pin-up girl calendar from Esquire Magazine on the ASIFA Hollywood Animation Archive.  The fine folks over at Esquire should hire some new artists and bring these calendars back!
