Virgil Finlay


  • Legal Name: Finlay, Virgil
  • Place of Birth: USA
  • Date of Birth: July 23, 1914
  • Date of Death: 1971


Born in Rochester, New York. Finlay was self-taught, and like Hannes Bok, got his start with Farnsworth Wright, who edited Weird Tales. Finlay's work is distinctive for his use of scratchboard, which is particularly well-suited to the demands of pulp printing, due to the use of very coarse paper of poor quality.
