In university my tutor one day voiced his opinion on the James Bond posters, insulting the artist, and saying that he gives too much of the story away. It was at that very moment that I stopped caring for what he had to say. McGinnis’s work is enviable, inspiring countless illustrators. Predominately creating work for pulp, he has also painted some of the most famous film posters including Breakfast at Tiffanys, Barbarella, and of course, several James Bonds. To delve deeper in the McGinnis archive I definitely recommend Tapestry: The Paintings of Robert McGinnis.
