From twirling tassels to dead playmates Archive of the Undressed is a sharp, darkly comic look at the image of women in a society between changing sexual mores. Jeanette Lynes brings her iconic style to these poems, fearlessly critiquing attitudes towards women, poking at Canadian identity and finding something sexy in the settlement of "The Queen's Bush"—Northern Ontario. A wickedly pointed and funny collection, Archive of the Undressed will overturn any reader's belief that poetry is boring.

The centrefolds and other visuals from the 1960s hold residual traces of an earlier pin-up era with its aesthetic of visual tease. Vintage Playmate centrefolds were classy, coy. Beginning in the 1970s the magazine’s soft aesthetic, its tease, began to give way to visuals that left nothing to the imagination. All strip, no tease.
