pin up girl - choose a jigsaw puzzle to solve

A pin-up model (known as a pin-up girl for a female and less commonly male pin-up for a male ) is a model whose mass -produced pictures see wide appeal as popular culture . Pin-ups are intended for informal display, i.e. meant to be "pinned-up" on a wall . Pin-up models may be glamour models, fashion models, or actors . These pictures are also sometimes known as cheesecake photos. The term pin-up may refer to drawings, paintings , and other illustrations as well as photographs (see the list of pin-up artists). The term was first attested to in English in 1941; however, the practice is documented back at least to the 1890s. Pin-up images could be cut out of magazines or newspapers, or on a postcard or lithograph. Such pictures often appear on walls, desks, or calendars. Posters of pin-ups were mass -produced, and became popular from the mid 20th century .
