Pulp Culture: The Art of Fiction Magazines Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Between the 1890s and the 1930s, pulp magazines (named for the rough wood-pulp paper on which they were printed) were widely popular. This visual tour of the genre presents 440 illustrated covers, with text describing their history and content. Some information about collecting and evaluating, dealers, and libraries for research is included. Of interest to collectors and aficionados, of course, but also to graphic artists and designers who will find it an eclectic source of imaginative ideas. Distributed in the US by Rizzoli through St. Martin's Press, and in Canada by McClelland & Stewart. 11.5x11.75"
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The proving ground for scores of writers and illustrators who went on to achieve great fame, pulp magazines helped popularize authors such as Dashiell Hammett, Ray Bradbury, and Edgar Rice Burroughs. Taken collectively, they now provide a panorama of some 60 years of illustration and social commentary. Winner of the "Pop Culture Book of the Year" by the Independent Publisher's Association, "Pulp Culture" is a must for graphic artists, fiction lovers, and anyone who appreciates the art of pulp fiction's golden age.
