These wonderfully lurid magazine covers are definitely eye-catching. The vintage artwork is bright, splashy and full of over the top dramatic poses and sinister doings. Occasionally too, you spot a well known name - an author who began with these pulps then went on to bigger and better things - Dime Detective has a story by Raymond Chandler.
To view even more covers and pick up all sorts of info regarding the collecting or just the viewing of these vintage treasures, check out the huge collection at Pulp Gallery link.
The sources for these covers are various and sundry and if anyone wants me to remove a cover from my post for whatever proprietary reason, I will immediately do so.
