In addition, the nose cones and bomber jackets fashioned by talented GI artists, as well as many of the original source images by Art Frahm, Early MacPherson, Gil Elvgren, and other pin-up greats are signposts on this sexy sentimental journey. Celebrity depictions including Betty Grable and Rita Hayworth fill the pages of this book that boasts over 550 color photographs.
