Alberto Vargas took over Esquire magazine’s monthly pin up post in late 1940. By 1942, when the U.S. joined the war, he had more than a million ardent fans who carried his pin ups in backpacks and duffel bags as reminders of the American girls they’d left behind. When Esquire was charged with obscenity over a particularly spicy pin up the military stepped in the fight for The Varga Girl, declaring her necessary for morale. Today these wartime pin ups are the most collectible of Vargas’ work, and we ‘ve collected them all in this compact, affordable 192 page volume.
