TwoMorrows publishing has announced that Matt Baker: The Art of Glamour will be released November 28. The biography of the fabled “Good Girl” illustrator charts the career of one of the earliest African-American comic book artists to gain recognition for his work.
Featuring a wealth of essays; interviews with Baker’s friends, family and co-workers, the biography details a life cut tragically short at the age of just 38. Ideally suited for fans of 1940’s pinup models, Baker’s style is classic and brings to life the style of a now bygone era. The details of his life are minutely researched by authors Jim Amash and Eric Nolen-Weathington, complemented by a treasure trove of his finest artwork.
Matt baker: The Art of Glamour can be pre-ordered here. and will be in stores on Wednesday, November 28
