Pulp magazines of the 40’s and 50’s, imaginative and expressive magazine titles which often depicted a futuristic interperatation of the world. A time of science and new discoveries when the world was still a mystery to most, the half dressed damsel in distress always needed a hero to save the day. Pulps were printed on cheap wood pulp paper hence the name “pulp fiction” The cover art of these publications was the main selling point of pulp. So important in fact that sometimes the cover would be produced before and the story and would be authored to match. Cover artists such as Frank R. Paul, Virgil Finlay, Edd Cartier, Margaret Brundage and Norman Saunders became as popular as the authors and the stories.
