A celebration of that impossible, loony, glorious nonsense that Jim Silke somehow finds essential.

Jungle Girls unleashes over fifty never-before-seen images of the fabulous and provocative female inhabitants of the fictional world’s steamier climes, all created by that renowned modern master of the pinup, Jim Silke.

This sumptuous volume celebrates literature’s original “natural woman” in all of her varied and glorious incarnations. From earthy jungle goddesses and sensual jungle queens to bedazzling slave girls and haughty harem damsels; from resplendent tropical tramps and beguiling dragon ladies to brazen, semi-clad barbarian babes to Silke’s versions of the modern, bold, daring and dangerous beauties that prowl his imagination. They’re all here—including H. Rider Haggard’s She, Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Jane and Hedy Lamarr’s Tondelayo. Each and every one of these delectable and decidedly dangerous beauties has been wholly captured— heart, body and soul—by Silke’s lush lines and brush strokes.

Jungle Girls showcases 52 all-new, simply stunning Silke illustrations, supplemented by an extensive selection of movie stills and other rare images from private collections, all of them carefully chosen to further heighten the reader’s enjoyment. As with all Flesk Publications, each and every page of this book will be reproduced, presented and printed on the best-quality paper to meet the highest, most exacting of standards, all to ensure that Silke’s “Jungle Girls” are presented to their best advantage.
