      For any fan of amazing book art. Mr. Mcginnis's work began to appear around 1947, and he is still actively painting today. The book starts of with a lengthy interview by author Art Scott. The accompanying text has McGinnis sharing his creative process, insights from his career and some stories behind the selected pieces of works. Mcginnis painted a number of the covers for the Hard Case Crime line of books, a number of the Richard S. Prather "Shell Scott" books, many of the Mike Shayne paperback [...]

      Aparte de la excelente selección de ilustraciones y la cuidada edición, fue muy interesante porque ahondaba de un modo muy ameno en las diferentes etapas que fue atravesando McGinnis a lo largo de su carrera. Recomendado para cualquiera que tenga interés en el arte y la ilustración.

      This has either convinced me to try my hand at painting again, or to give up on art entirely. Haven't decided. This is just absolutely stunning work.

      McGinnis is an incredible artist. This book manages to give a history of the period the work was done without getting in the way of the art. That's pretty much the perfect way to have an art book. McGinnis painted book covers prolifically, gaining the most fame for his pulp and romance covers. He also did movie posters, the, arguably, most iconic being "Breakfast at Tiffany's." He also did many James Bond posters. He later painted for magazines like "Saturday Evening Post," "Good Housekeeping," [...]

      As an illustrator, I have always been intoxicated with McGinnis' work. From his pulp inspired portraits to his bleak earth toned landscapes of the West. This book covers it all. Not just the most popular covers, but over 70 years of some of the best illustration ever made. Art Scott has compiled a great collection of images showcasing McGinnis' breadth, artist interviews and synopses of each era in the artist's work. This is an incredible art book for any fan of beautiful women, pulp art, and am [...]

      Any fan of his is an idiot for not scraping together the $18 ( price) to own this gorgeous hardback edition.

      I was primarily familiar with his pulp novel covers and movie posters, but this was a very cool overview of a very cool illustrator/artist.
