Daily Dose Pick: Classic Pin-Up Art of Jack Cole


Jack Cole’s seductive, cartoonishly sexy pin-up drawings — which frequented the pages of Playboy throughout the ’50s — get a long overdue tribute in Classic Pin-Up Art of Jack Cole.

Though he had already made a name for himself with Plastic Man, a beloved superhero from the Golden Age of Comics, Cole became a wider and iconic success with his watercolor illustrations for the popular magazine. This newly published collection reproduces his lavishly detailed depictions of bombshell babes and sex symbols, offering close-up access to one of the 20th-century’s most influential pop-culture artists.
