Gil Elvgren: All his Glamorous American Pin-Ups SC (2006 Barnes & Nobles) comic books

  • Issue #1-1ST

    This item is not in stock at MyComicShop. If you use the "Add to want list" tab to add this issue to your want list, we will email you when it becomes available.

    1st printing.

    Post-depression America was in desperate need of a defining iconography that would lift it out of the black and white doldrums, and it came in the form of Gil Elvgren's Technicolor fantasies of the American dream. His technique—which earned him a reputation as "The Norman Rockwell of cheesecake"—involved photographing models and then painting them into gorgeous hyper-reality, with longer legs, more flamboyant hair and gravity-defying busts, and in the process making them the perfect moral-boosting eye-candy for every homesick private.

    Softcover, 7 1/2-in. x 10-in., 272 pages, full color.
