Gil Elvgren (1914-1980) was, and remains one of the best known pin-up artists in the world. It took the authors of this book about ten years to assemble the images and they belive it constitutes close to 98 per cent of all the pin-ups and glamour paintings produced by the artist. The text is in English, French and German. The illustrations in this volume are drawn principally from the archives of publishing company Brown and Bigelow.
