On one side, Dita Von Teese shares the beauty of the burlesque world, with bubblegum dreams and show tunes to strip to. Flip over for fantasies in fetish with dramatic costumes and the allure of submission. Burlesque and the Art of the Teese "I advocate glamour. Every day. Every minute." I'm a good dancer and a nice girl, but I'm a great showgirl. I sell, in a word, magic. Burlesque is a world of illusion and dreams and of course, the striptease. Whether I am bathing in my martini glass, riding my sparkling carousel horse, or emerging from my giant gold powder compact, I live out my most glamorous fantasies by bringing nostalgic imagery to life. Let me show you my world of gorgeous pin-ups, tantalizing stripteases, and femmes fatales. I'll give you a glimpse into my life, but a lady never reveals all. Fetish and the Art of the Teese You may have come for the fetish. Or you may just be sneaking a peek at this mysterious and peculiar other side. No matter what you've come for, there is something for you to indulge in. My world of fetish may not be the one that you would expect. As a burlesque performer, I entice my audience, bringing their minds closer and closer to sex and then -- as good temptress must -- snatching it away. As a fetish star, I apply the same techniques. . . . An opera-length kid leather glove, a strict wasp waist, an impossibly high patent leather heel, a severely painted red lip. . . . Come with me into my world of decadent fetishism.

It was a time when the image of a pretty girl flourished. Whether it was a painted calendar; advertisement; or the photo pinups of Rita, Betty or Esther that the G.I.’s adorned their footlockers with. Pinup was a uniquely American art form.

If the burlesque stripper, with her bawdy spirit and unruly insubordination, has emerged for many as a new 'empowering' model for the sexually aware woman, then she also strikes horror in the heart of second wave feminism. Embodied by high profile artistes such as Dita von Teese and Catherine d’Lish, the explosive revival of striptease, burlesque and overt female sexual performance has proved no less alluring to a new generation of women artists familiar with the provocative work of 70’s performance artists such as Hannah Wilke and Carolee Schneeman. Eloquent on ‘prettiness’ and power, desire and ‘knowingness’, money, sex and class, and with an extensive knowledge of burlesque’s rich tradition, Willson raises long overdue questions about women’s erotic expression within a ‘postfeminist’ condition. The ‘new burlesque’ demands above all a response - this fresh, brazen, provocative book at last provides it.

Though burlesque has survived in the back of our cultural consciousness after being pushed aside by modern stripping in the '50s, the revival that began in the early '90s has finally brought burlesque back to the forefront of popular culture. Evolving from an underground movement to a nearly mainstream fetish, neo-burlesque embraces a wide variety of modern interpretations all based on the classic bump and grind and “taking it off” with a wink and a smile. From classic tributes to punk rock revisionists, women of all ages, sizes, and backgrounds are rediscovering burlesque and reinventing it. A sense of heightened imagination, empowerment and energy are being delivered to the stage, perhaps even more so than during the historic heyday, the Golden Age of Burlesque. Slipping behind the scene, Burlesque and the New Bump-n-Grind undresses the issues of feminism, modern popularity, and what exactly draws the unique and varied audience members to the shows. The women—and men!—of burlesque also receive their fleshed-out dues by a categorized peek into the various troupe styles including classical, re-creationists, revivalists, modern, circus, performance art, political, queer, bawdy singers and comics. Peppered throughout the book are full-color and black-and-white photographs that fully instill the picturesque dance into the reader's mind. Founder of one of the first neo-burlesque troupes, author Michelle Baldwin (a.k.a, Vivienne Va-Voom) has helped to bring the lost art of burlesque back to the forefront of pop culture. Baldwin has served as the creative director, choreographer, music director, costumer, financial head, and performer for her troupe, “Burlesque As It Was.” Her deep immersion into this art form has provided her with a rare view into the growth and evolution of the revival.

What started out as a simple trip to apostcard fair turned into a lifelong investigation for author Robert FlynnJohnson. Captivated by the beauty and originality of a group ofnineteenth-century photographs of women, he had to know more. Now, nearly a decade after his firstencounter with the images, Johnson has uncovered more than two hundred vintagephotographs of women who lived and worked at a brothel in Reading,Pennsylvania, circa 1892. Taken by commercial photographer William Goldman, thephotographs paint a full picture of the environment that the womeninhabited--from inside the brothel, posing artistically for the camera, to theiroff-duty routines, such as reading, smoking, and bathing. Never-beforepublished and taken two decades before the famous E. J. Bellocq photographs ofprostitutes in Storyville in New Orleans circa 1913, these beautifully producedphotographs are only now seeing the light of day. Johnson uses these photographs to detailtheir aesthetic, historical, and sociological importance in the history ofphotography, examining them alongside paintings and photographs by such artistsas Degas, Picasso, Atget, and more. Accompanied by essays from Professor RuthRosen and Dennita Sewell that provide an insightful historical overview ofthese images in context of the period in which they were taken and a foreword fromfamed burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese, this volume provides a personal visualrecord of lives of these women while also offering a deeper understanding ofthe Working Girls that existed morethan 120 years ago.
