Illustration Issue number fifty-two
We feature the spectacular art of Al Buell, best known for his sexy pin-up illustrations of the 1940s and '50s. Our feature includes dozens of reproductions taken directly from the original art, previously unpublished pencil sketches, and color preliminary studies. Our second feature concerns the work of the legendary illustrator John LaGatta, whose painterly and sophisticated renderings of sexy women in the '30s presents an entirely different perspective on the art of the pin up. Book reviews, exhibitions and events, and more round out the issue!
