Bob McGinnis

Recommended Posts

McGinnis has long been an idol of mine! There's a new documentary out covering his career, including his over one thousand paperbacks and scores of iconic movie posters. I just watched it and it's teriffic! I HIGHLY recommend it! You can get it here--

I've seen the Bond images before, and I just love them. I'm kind of a Bond junkie though. :)

 

That last image makes me think of Point Blank.

Joe, could you post some of those here?

Not sure I saw that stuff and I need to see them now. Thanks for posting some McGinnis pics above. Fucking breathtaking.

They're in the deviantART gallery, but I'll post some to photobucket and get them up here.

THese three are for a 60's paperback themed calendar that I'm working on. I have them mocked up as actual covers. I'll post those when I can.

Thanks, Jim! Not sure if you remember, but that was one of my original 21 Down cover sketches when we trying to get a feel for the covers.

 

beautiful.

 

the one with the girl on the dead guy under the sheet is an instant classic.

I know this thread is ancient but I'm new here!

My Guiness is awesome. I've been trying to get my hands on that documentary for a year. It's sold out everywhere. I did get my hands on a copy of Tapestry, a collection of his stuff. Amazing.

 

I bought 21 Down when they came out initially because the covers completely kicked ass, the story really won me over though I was bummed when it was bagged.

It's the same one Noland mentioned long ago (originally posted by Joe)... love it !

 

Got another link to that image?

Anybody know where to find that Doc?

 

The not so little tech-thingy this place had earlier this week seemed to have bounced it & now is only able to show up much smaller, oh well (getting a clearer picture of Thomas' SOS)... reposted it- fixed. :^]
