**My sincerest thanks to all those who've enjoyed Lots of Pulp over the past couple of years! It will be closing its doors (for the time being, at least...) but please feel free to peruse and enjoy all the amazing, classic covers, preserved here for your pleasure...**

For the first half of the 20th century, pulp fiction made up America's most popular form of entertainment, beyond even movies and radio. During that time, some of the nation's finest pop illustrators and painters created untold thousands of original works to adorn the covers of these everyman novels, most in virtual anonymity. Then, in the 1950s, television came along and finally laid the pulps to rest, bringing an end to an unappreciated art form in the process. The post-modern view of pop culture that has arisen in recent decades has shed new light on the work of the great pulp artists. I respectfully showcase that work here...

Gotta love those 1930s men's pulps. Imagine what those trembling male readers would've done if they got a hold of the internet?... On second thought, don't.
