“Alberto Vargas: The Esquire Years, Vignettes” by Michael Goldberg, Vol. I – Book Review

Albert Vargas Vignettes” is a thin soft cover book.pretty, girl, yellow, flower print, sun dress, front cover, Vargas Vignettes, Esquire Years, Michael Goldberg, Pretty, book, Red Head, Long Red Hair, Varga, Varga Girl, Pinup

It’s sized like a small post card with 64, 4 inch by 5.5 inch, pages.

It’s a cute little blue book of about 30 Vargas images, and is very suitable for display where space might be a limitation.

There will be one full page image on the right side pages, its facing page will have a brief title for the images, along with a paragraph or few of a running biography on Vargas’ life by Michael Goldberg.

For me,  this book was to provide some samples of Vargas’ images for my studio.

You know, for my clients and models to perruse and to give me the occational inspiration for pinup photos I might choose to shoot.

For these purposes, Vignettes, with its PG-13 Esquire years images serves well enough… though I do would love for the book, and hense images, to be a bit bigger…

Still, its a cute little hand full.

For this purpose of sharing and occational inspiration, I can recommend it….

Or, if you are a fan of Vargas’ “Esquire Magazine” years, … then maybe you gotta have it.

Currently, these are available new or used from Amazon for $25-$28 by clicking here.

Or you may consider checking out the review of “Vargas,” which is cheaper, bigger, and I think nicer, if not new.
