His name is less familiar than Vargas' and Elvgren's, but his brilliantly colored voluptuous pin-ups are well known. From 1944 to 1955 he painted the most popular magazine covers in America for Beauty Parade, Wink, Titter, Eyeful, Flirt and Whisper magazines. He was rediscovered in the 1990s as the subject of Taschen's The Best of American Girlie Magazines, and since has decorated T-shirts and coffee mugs, album covers and tattooed tushes. Now his many fans can have over 200 of his original paintings and published covers, from the beginning to the end of his prolific career, in a light, portable and affordable edition.
