As a professional photographer and artist, the one thing I love collecting and surrounding myself with are art books from artists whose work I admire. Never in a million years did I think that I would have the honor to share a book shelf with many of my artistic inspirations.
With that said, I am so incredibly proud and honored to announce that the wonderful team at Schiffer Publishing will be releasing my very first book, KEYHOLE CUTIES™: THE PIN-UP ART OF CELESTE GIULIANO later this year! KEYHOLE CUTIES™ will be a collection of my work throughout the years and feature some never before seen photos as well as several brand new images I photographed exclusively for this book. The hardcover book is over 170 pages and includes a very special foreword by the amazing Monica Lewis, mid-century recording artist, MGM contract player and an original pin- up girl.
Here is a description of the book from Schiffer Publishing:
KEYHOLE CUTIES: THE PIN-UP ART OF CELESTE GIULIANO
Pin-ups are a classic American art form that have enthralled generations since first gaining widespread popularity in the 1920s. Today, internationally acclaimed photographer, Celeste Giuliano has developed a style of photography that masterfully pays homage to the sweet and sexy look of the classic pin-up girl illustrations from WWII America. With a focus on details, authenticity, lighting, studio techniques and poses, she has made a career of transforming everyday women into pin-up queens and making both men and women alike fall in love with their classic beauty all over again. In this, her first definitive collection, Celeste reminds us why men “pinned up” these lovely ladies and why their timeless beauty is still as sexy as ever. Each of the 130 portraits takes you back to the time where a flirtatious smile or a peek at a garter was what made the girl next door the ultimate bombshell.
The book is scheduled to be released this fall/winter and I will have a special pre-order set up for fans in the upcoming months so stay tuned for more information!
Thanks again to all of you for your overwhelming support thorughout the years as I could not have done this without you!
