Theirs are the names everyone knows—Frank, Dean, Sammy, Marilyn—The Rat Pack, among the most iconic American figures of the last century. They were the madmen before Mad Men, the artists who gave us our definition of skirt-chasing, jetsetting, cocktail-swilling cool. So we couldn’t be more pleased to exclusively debut two never-before-published photos of Sinatra and his friends, taken at the height of their careers; plus eight more that are collected in the new, sumptuously illustrated book The Rat Pack, by aficionado Shawn Levy.

Of course, pixels can’t do photography like this justice—thankfully, you can see the photos in person at a new exhibition at Milk Studios, which opens tomorrow and runs through March 28. It features signed vintage prints and limited-edition estate prints, most previously unseen, starting at $1,000. The best is yet to—well, you know.

MILK GALLERY IS LOCATED AT 450 W. 15TH STREET IN NEW YORK.
