- Full Description
All from the original art: Rare, completely nude ladies by famous pin-up artists Fritz Willis, Roy Best, Zoe Mozart, Gil Elvgren (who rarely did nudes, but here are a bunch), Andrew Loomis, Earl Moran (two 2-page spreads and more), Art Sarnoff, Rolf Armstrong (several), George Petty (one nude, four just-about), Bergey, and of course, Vargas. Suggestive pin-ups by Caldwell Higgins, Bill Randal, Ted Withers, Art Frahm, 11 pieces including one nude and several great Film Fun covers by Enoch Bolles. And much more by lesser-knowns and unknowns.
Although most of the book is devoted to these amazing nudes, never before collected together and many very rarely seen, the last 16 pages are great suggestive vintage paperback covers. Artists here include the greats: Avati (five of them), Robert McGinnis, Rudy Nappi, Paul Rader, DeSoto (two), George Gross and the great Edwin Georgi.
All full page, all from the original paintings with no added text or logos.
Unrepentant, unapologetic, unbridled and under-appreciated, genre art from the first half of the 20th century reflected the subconscious urges of a generation. From pin-up calendars to pulp cover art, this explores the lurid and the fascinating, often from the original artwork. This bargain-priced hardcover from the fine publisher Underwood Books collects work by the stars of pin-up art and many others as they let their untamed imaginations run wild.
Forward by Edward Mason.
Underwood Books, publisher of Frank Frazetta, Dave Stevens and the Spectrum Annual, put this and sister volume Savage Art together, in the same format. They were specially designed to present some fine, fine artwork and yet at a very affordable price. We are pleased to be able to offer these for even less than the low original price, two books every fan of art and pin-up should have in their collection.
