Pin Up style has quite a few stories that have started in the late 19th century when burlesque performers felt the real power of photographic advertisement. It`s simple! To promote themselves performing artists needed informative and eye-catching business cards.

Quite a special kind of promotional advertising cards that would perfectly represent their spectacular shows and performances. Therefore, they must display something powerful, a waking love, a desire, and admiration.

Therefore beautiful performers have done a great job, they simply have used the easiest recipe of success. They have united their creative identity and sexuality with photography and this unity very quickly made them visible, desired and popular.

This kind of business cards in the form of promotional posters appeared literally everywhere! Posters and cards were “pinned up” inside the cars or stuck into “frames of the looking-glasses, in the joints of the gas-burners, and sometimes lying on top of the sacred cast-case itself” – someone has literally described. A short story that explains Pin Up idea.

A very short story that explains an idea of the Pin Up meaning.
