Vintage Pulp Fiction Paperbacks

Somehow I ran across a mountain of boxes filled with paperback books. Being more of a reader than a writer I was interested. Then I found At the bottom were these paperbacks with these cartoon like covers

 

 

So I threw in some vintage classics with some Magazine Memorabilia

  “STEREOTYPICAL”   is the best way to describe this cover art.

Enjoy these steamy, vivid, and Vintage book covers.  Our parents must have kept hidden because I never remember seeing anything like this in my families possession probably because we are all catholic.

Our Parents and Grandparents were afforded the intelligence to not become racist, fascist, or prejudice based on “violent images” on paperback books. Back in our parents “heyday” these were the type of “fad” covers that sold more books.

Here is where I can really love our HISTORY. The “Influences that shaped our world only 40-60 years ago.

copyright notice, these images are intended to show the history of book publishing and are intended to show the intelligence, artwork, talent, and color that went into publishing these books.  All hand crafted. An art that is lost to us today through automation.

 

Reading a few of these short stories.  They are demure compared to todays letters to the editor in a girlie publication.  So these stereotypical covers that are nothing short of works of miniature art 3×5, 5×7 or 4 1/2 x 7, 6 1/2 x 4 just a few of the paperback sizes all different making them all unique.

With familiar authors that are mainstream and well known today maybe not so well known for their titillating beginnings.
