GirlZoot, who continues to send me the most wonderful women via snail mail, notes that there is no such thing as too much Bettie Page. She is, of course, correct. She also notes that this photo was taken by Bunny Yeager, who was herself a ridiculously gorgeous pinup girl back in the day and who is still an active photographer today. Bunny’s photography career really kicked off when she sent an image of a nude Bettie decorating a Christmas tree to a brand new, little-known publication called Playboy.
GirlZoot closes her postcard with the message “will send more girls soon.” Presumably this means postcards featuring girls rather than actual girls, but you never know. Still, I won’t get my hopes up.
