A pin-up or pin-up girl (sometimes also spelled pinup) is a model whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as popular culture. Pin-ups are intended for informal display, e.g. meant to be "pinned-up" on a wall. Pin-up girls may be glamour models, fashion models, or actresses. These pictures are also known as cheesecake photos.
Irving Klaw and Bettie Page
The American Irving Klaw was an influential fetish photographer who also pioneered in the pin-up market. After he discovered teenagers were frequently tearing out photos from his movie magazines, he started selling movie star stills and lobby photo cards. Customers could order by item number from catalogs of sample photos. These sold so well that he stopped selling books and moved the store from the basement to the street-level storefront and renamed it Irving Klaw Pin Ups. Business thrived, and he called himself the "Pin-Up King". His model Bettie Page became the first famous bondage model.
