Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A lavishly illustrated scrapbook of World War II pin-up memorabilia, For The Boys showcases the morale-boosting pin-up calendars, postcards, cartoons, matchbooks, and playing cards that sweethearts, wives, and relatives sent from the home front to their men in the armed forces. 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.
