Item description for Gil Elvgren: All His Glamorous American Pin-Ups (Taschen 25th Anniversary Special Editions) by Gil Elvgren, Charles G. Martignette & Louis K. Meisel...

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 theform 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.

Interesting Book  Jul 19, 2008
I'm still studying and reading through it, but it has an interesting magic that's missing in many of today's similar subjects - innocence.
The product is just as gorgeous as the subject matter!   Jul 15, 2008
This book is absolutely beautiful. Lots and lots of color - designed and bound very well. Worth every penny and then some. Impressed with this site's service (my first order) and the whole shopping/purchase experience here.
great quality, great value, great buy!  Jul 12, 2008
I highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in Elvgren or pin-ups. Beautiful picture quality, comprehensive collection. For the money, you can't get much better than this!
WOW  May 30, 2008
Elvgren is a master of his art. This book truly is a gem at this price. If you love pinup art he is the master. Its a slice of days gone past and pretty girls to write home about. Elvgren will live on forever. Take a piece of history home.
Gorgeous book.  Apr 29, 2008
If you love this era of art, this is a beauty. Great coffee table book to spark conversation.
