Goodbye 50's, Hello 60's
As the 50's became the 60's, magazines used less and less illustration in general, but more specifically, there were fewer short romantic fiction stories - thus fewer boy/girl 'clinch' illustrations were required. Old standard bearers like Jon Whitcomb and Coby Whitmore had all but disappeared from the scene. During that latter period you're more likely to find the names of illustrators like Mike Ludlow, Howard Terpining... and Andy Virgil.
You can find all the images from last week and this week in my Andy Virgil Flickr set.
