The pin up line drawings in this volume are from the Sailor Jerry (Norman Keith Collins (1911-1973) Collection and were rendered by Michael (Rollo Banks) Malone (1942-2007). Malone purchased Sailor Jerry's entire collection of artwork and tattoo shop contents from Jerry's widow after Jerry's death in 1973.
This is a reprint of the Sailor Jerry Sketchbook, Vol. 1 Pin-Ups that was originally printed by Malone in 1987. Malone handpicked the designs included in this book. Sailor Jerry is well known for his pinups and his style seems to be derived from exchanges of letters and instruction from other excellent tattooists/artists of this time, including Pinky Yun and Brooklyn Joe Lieber.
This reprint includes an introduction by Kandi Everett, and a copy of Michael Malone's Obituary as originally published in the New York Times on April 30, 2007.
