Robert E. McGinnis (born 1926) is an amazing painter. He has drawn over 1200 book covers. This book contains a selection of those covers, together with movie posters, landscape paintings, western art, ladies and miscellaneous paintings. He has done film posters for Breakfast at Tiffanys and James Bond just to name a few.
Why is this guy so good?
He can draw women very well. So well that each is termed 'The McGinnis Woman'. His understanding of the female form, and human anatomy is unparalleled. Every lady looks carved out on the paper. The style and elegance are stunning.
His paintings on landscape and cowboys are out of this world good. The composition and the style is just so right.
This book was published in 2000 and will be hard to find. But it's one hell of a book, if only to look at his painted women.
