From what I've posted here on the last three Saturdays, I'm sure it's become obvious that I'm a big fan of pulp fiction cover art. I want to highlight a cover this week that I think will help to explain my infatuation.
First is the actual book cover for a 1953 book by Jane Manning called Reefer Girl:
The book is described as "The frank, biting story of a young girl of the slums, and how she was caught in the toils of evil." Its cover is based on an "oil on board" painting by Rudy Nappi.
Next, I want you to click on the image shown below to experience a true work of art, Nappi's original painting:
See why these covers can be so intriguing?
