Robert McGinnis is one of the greatest paperback cover artists of all time. McGinnis has painted over 1200 paperback covers and over 40 movie posters, including Breakfast at Tiffanys and several James Bond films. In 1993, he was voted into the Society of Illustrators’ Hall of Fame.

The two previous books on McGinnis (publishing in 2000 and 2001) are both long out of print and command premium prices. So a new monograph on the artist is long overdue. With 176 pages and a large 9x12 format, this promises to be the biggest and best of the three volumes.

From the publisher:

Painter Robert McGinnis has earned international renown as a master illustrator by creating poster art 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. And he's a legendary book cover artist, having painted images for approximately 1,400 titles, from authors such as Lawrence Block, Erle Stanley Gardner (Perry Mason crime case series), Carter Brown, John D. MacDonald, Thornton Wilder, Johanna Lindsey (romance novels), and Stephen King (Joyland special edition). Also, McGinnis has created illustrations for major magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post and Good Housekeeping, as well as stunning gallery paintings of landscapes, Western scenes, and ladies.

Delving into private collections and personal archives, with many of the works shot from original paintings, The Art of Robert E. McGinnis opens the door to an unparalleled and illustrious career. One that continues to this day.
