- Full Description
A top notch new issue. Three lengthy features look at three very different illustrators. The cover feature looks at Elaine Duillo, known to her fans simply as "Elaine"--the Queen of Romance covers. Paperback expert Gary Lovisi examines her career in a wonderfully illustrated look which begins with very out-of-character, sexy pop-culture covers from the 1960s, influenced by James Bama and Frank McCarthy.
Then we have a wonderful feature on Coby Whitmore, one of the giants of magazine illustration. His stylish and self-confident women became icons of the 1950s, in both story illustrations and covers for Cosmopolitan and other major magazines.
Last we have a previously little known paperback artist who did hundreds of un-attributed covers for all the major publishers in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Several were credited to Charles Copeland. But his powerful and sexy work until now was recognized only by a few paperback devotees. Here is George Ziel, who became part of the Society of Illustrators but like many major names, began and made his name in the trenches of often sleazy, sometimes classy, paperback covers!
