Since 1964, the Pirelli Calendar has featured countless beautiful photographs of equally beautiful women. And though it was initially reserved for important clients of the tire company, it has since evolved into an iconic publication that has included women like Gigi Hadid, Alessandra Ambrosio, Gisele Bündchen, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Kate Moss.

In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the Pirelli Calendar has released a retrospective book that explores its 50-plus-year history—showcasing some of its most popular images by renowned photographers such as Richard Avedon, Nick Knight, Inez and Vinoodh, Annie Leibovitz, and Bruce Weber.

The book, titled Pirelli - The Calendar, 50 Years and More, also includes some never-before-seen pictures that were too racy for print, as well as the unpublished 1963 calendar.

Take a look at some of the pages included below. You can pick up the book today at Taschen.com
