Sophisticated Seduction: The Illustration of Robert McGinnis

Watching the trailer for Tom Ford’s new film A Single Man reminded me of the illustrations of Robert McGinnis. McGinnis illustrated over 1,200 paperback novels and over 40 movie posters, including Breakfast At Tiffanys and several James Bond films. His illustrations of leggy, seductive women exude an air of danger and mystery; the men, debonair while holding a pistol or a whiskey on the rocks.
