The Art of Robert E. McGinnis by Robert McGinnis (artwork) and Art Scott (text)
Titan Books, November 2014 oversized (9.3 x 0.8 x 12.2 inches), 176 page hardcover. All artwork in color. Also, Limited Edition (1000 copies) in slipcase with signed numbered print.
I ordered the Limited Edition (small image at bottom of post) and it took longer to process through the system. I finally got my copy, and I couldn’t be more pleased.
This is a really beautiful book; the binding is high quality, the paper is thick and allows absolutely top quality reproduction of the artwork. And what artwork!
Painter Robert McGinnis has earned international renown as a master artist/illustrator, beginning with magazine work, creating illustrations for major magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post and Good Housekeeping. But his reputation was really made as a book cover artist, having painted images for approximately 1,400 titles, for the Mike Shayne, Perry Mason series and many books by Carter Brown, John D. MacDonald and many, many others, including crime, historical, romance, westerns, adventure, classics and more.
McGinnis also created poster art for Hollywood, for such movies as Breakfast at Tiffany’s, James Bond films (seven of them), Barbarella (starring Jane Fonda), The Odd Couple, and Cotton Comes to Harlem. Also included, are several stunning McGinnis gallery paintings.
Great job, Art Scott for the authoritative, well written text. Many of the works in this book were shot from original paintings, the reproduction is very high quality. This is a must buy for anyone who appreciates fine art and illustration.
