Pin-Up Links

Before you voyage forth and expand your appreciation of classic pin-up art, why not add 'The Hunger Site' to your bookmarks? With just a daily click of your mouse you can donate, for free, food for the hungry around the world.

General:

The Great American Pin-Up - Associated with the great art book written by Louis K. Meisel and Charles G. Martignette. Cheesy music, a paucity of information and images. Do yourself a favor and buy the book!

The Pin-Up Files - A great pin-up site and leader of the Pin-Up Webring. There are more artists than appear in the gallery listing, so use the search function on the home page.

Artist Specific:

Gil Elvgren - Excellent reference on Gil, including a comprehensive, historical biography.

Some nice contemporary prints can be bought at spiderwebart, especially Greg Hildebrandt and Dave Stevens.

San Francisco Art Exchange - They sell some Vargas originals and Memorabilia. Some nice early works and brief biographical notes.

Scans:

ImageNETion Chock full of images, including pin-up, sci-fi and fantasy.
