I should point out for those who don't know that McGinis is the very prolific cover artist who did very many of the paperback covers for writers such as Richard S Prather, Carter Brown, Edward S Aarons, Brett Halliday, the Travis McGee books, the Gold Medal editions of Richard Stark, as well as countless others including many of the most famous authors, books & series' especially for Signet, Dell & Gold Medal. He also did some very famous movie posters from the '60's such as for
"Barbarella" & the Bond movies. He's a very important if often overlooked part of the history of hardboiled literature & helped to sell Buddha knows how many extra copies of these books with his paintings of impossibly beautiful, sexy & elegant femmes fatale.
