Enoch Bolles was among the earliest and most widely circulated glamour illustrators. While known today solely as a pinup artist, Bolles was a versatile illustrator who also worked extensively in the advertising industry, creating hundreds of attractive color illustrations for products ranging from bread to cigarettes. His most widely reproduced advertising illustration is the Windy Girl for Zippo lighters.
Bolles' magazine work first appeared in 1914 on the covers of popular humor periodicals such as JUDGE and PUCK, but he is best known for FILM FUN. In 1923 Bolles became the exclusive cover artist for FILM FUN and continued in this role until the magazine folded in 1943
