Dames, Dolls & Delinquents: A Collector's Guide to Sexy Pulp Fiction Paperbacks

Dames, Dolls & Delinquents: A Collector's Guide to Sexy Pulp Fiction Paperbacks Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's no secret the sexy and racy cover art of femme fatales from the golden age of paperbacks and magazines exalts the female form in all its sexy and sultry allure. Still today, these lustful, passionate and sometimes lurid images are enticing and artistically inspiring.

From sexy, semi-dressed pin-up dolls to dangerous bad girls and deadly dames, many of these rare covers were painted by some of the most talented and collectible artists of the last 50 years, including popular American artists Robert Bonfils, Robert Maguire, Gene Bilbrew and Bill Ward, and British artists Reginald Heade and H.W. Perl.

Always titillating, often tawdry, definitely not politically correct nor for the faint of heart, the nearly 700 full-color pulp fiction paperback cover images in this book show women in all their sexy, sassy and sinful best.

This dynamic book also features:

700 covers with title, author, cover artist, publisher, book number, and date of publication for each book

Values for three grades of condition

A quick guide to collecting

A list of specialist book dealers and collector shows
