NEW! Pollen in Print: 1955-1959 (DELUXE HARDCOVER)

$39.95

POLLEN IN PRINT: 1955-1959 is a 140-page, 8.5” x 11”, hardcover art book featuring classic men’s adventure magazine (MAM) illustrations by artist Samson Pollen, printed on high quality paper in full color. It’s a follow-up to two previous highly-praised books POLLEN’S WOMEN: THE ART OF SAMSON POLLEN and POLLEN’S ACTION. (Which I also offer for sale in separate listings.)

This latest release in the acclaimed Men’s Adventure Library series reproduces Samson Pollen’s illustrations for men’s adventure magazines published between 1955 and 1955 in chronological order using high resolution scans. Like POLLEN’S WOMEN and POLLEN’S ACTION, this book is a horizontal 8.5” x 11” format, so every example of what was originally a 2-page spread in the magazines is shown complete on a single page in the book, with no “page seam.”

This latest release in the acclaimed Men’s Adventure Library series reproduces Samson Pollen’s illustrations for men’s adventure magazines published between 1955 and 1955 in chronological order using high resolution scans. Like POLLEN’S WOMEN and POLLEN’S ACTION, this book is a horizontal 8.5” x 11” format, so every example of what was originally a 2-page spread in the magazines is shown complete on a single page in the book, with no “page seam.”

The book also reproduces the “spot illustrations” Pollen created to go with some stories. These rarely-seen images are also printed large on full pages, thus showing Pollen’s amazing skill as an illustration artist even when doing what were originally printed as small illustrations.

The chronological presentation of Pollen’s art in POLLEN IN PRINT serves as its own visual history, illuminating both Pollen’s growth as an artist, as well as the magazines’ (and their readers’) shifting focus and changing interests from the mid- to late-1950s.
