The primary source of printed information has come from two books:
Great American Pin-Up', Martignette and Meisel, Taschen, 1996.
This book gets my highest recommendation! (Mr Meisel was kind enough

- His Life & Art', Collins and Elvgren, Collector's Press,
1998 for some insights from Gil's son, Drake.
Some additional information was provided by the collector's periodical
Wrapper, issues 113 and 137.
The Moran article was taken from The
Illustrator Collectors News.

I would be remiss if I didn't give thanks to those who made my life
as a webmaster easier. For the OpenSource gallery, I thank all those
who worked on the Coppermine
Photo Album. Thanks to the collector community who have supported
me in pulling this resource together. Thanks to Jeff, who hosted this
site and has offered invaluable help over the years I've known him.
And a special thanks to my wife, Pam, the most beautiful pin-up in
