This 1998 Editor's Choice Award winner of the Independent Publishing Association quickly sold-out the first printing of 10,000. It is a lively biography on American pin-up artist Gillette Elvgren, a commercial advertising artist of the WWII era. Told by the son of the artist, included are art techniques, pin-up paintings and a behind the scenes personal view of this legendary artist who inspired servicemen worldwide.
Max Allan Collins credit list includes four suspense-novel series, film criticism, short fiction, and songwriting. Widely acknowledged as an authority on the pin-up, Collins is author of the Artist Archive Series.
I hope someone writes a biography of Elvgren without his son involved. He made a point to say he was a born again Christian and attended an Assembly of God church, which is all very nice, but not very relevant to Elvgren's art.
