#vintagepaperback . Me: Hey guys, I can’t decide whether to get this. Friend 1: Whoa. What year is it from? Me: Wait, let me Google the Roman numerals - 1945. Friend 1: Well, as we often discuss, old books are old books and we should treat them like the interesting cultural artifacts they are. I can’t say I’ve read any Asian mixed marriage narratives from that time period, so I myself would be interested in seeing what he has to say and how he portrays his wife. Me: Yeah, sigh, I don’t know. Friend 2: That looks like Archie and Veronica. Me: SOLD! . My Chinese Wife (1945) by Karl Eskelund. Seems like he was a Danish reporter who became an extremely popular travel writer in the 50s and early 60s, but suffered from alcoholism and depression and later committed suicide. His wife published her own book about their life together twenty years after his death. . #bookstagram #vintagebooks #pulpcover #oldbooks #bookworm #bookcollector #booklover #booknerd #bibliophile #karleskelund #chiyuneskelund

My commissioned original recreation painting of the iconic Shadow pulp cover printed in december 1939. The Shadow pulps have so many great covers. This is one of my utmost favorites of the run. I figured it would make a great candidate for a large painting for my comic room. Painted by a friend who, oddly enough, rarely paints... @jencookk Thanks Jen!! Soon to be framed, it measures 36x48. Oil on canvas. #originalart #theshadow #pulpcover #1939 #detective #theshadowknows #oilpainting #shadowcomics

I received an extra copy of Letter from Peking and, screw minimalism, I think I’m going to keep it! 😄 . This book, about an American woman separated from her half-Chinese husband after then Communists come into power, is still my favorite Buck novel. Love and longing run throughout, not just the narrator’s for her husband but Buck’s for China, the country she spent forty years in but was later barred from reentering. It’s also a powerful examination of being mixed race, of what that identity does to oneself in an unaccepting society. My favorite lines, about whether a biracial child looks this way or that: “In Peking they said he looked like his father. But that is the way it is. Each side insists the other side prevails and so each rejects what is not like itself.” . Interesting how mass market cover designs change. The one on the left is from 1964, the one on the right from 1969. Most people I’ve shown these to prefer the earlier artwork. A pity they didn’t include artist information in each book. . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #vintagebooks #vintagecover #pulpcover #vintagepaperback #oldbooks #pearlsbuck #letterfrompeking #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #bookaddict #bibliophile #bookish
Does this count for #signetsaturday ? . Some of you may be fans of Love is a Many-Splendored Thing. I honestly never heard of it until I learned about Eurasian doctor Han Suyin and her novel that inspired the movie. . The novel is strongly autobiographical, based on her love affair with a married Australian journalist. I have some mixed feelings over it. It’s a beautiful, tragic love story. He died young, killed in the Korean War. But he was married, and his wife, left in Singapore to raise their kids, didn’t know about the affair until this book came out. That would kill me, the mistress writing a bestselling novel turned into a famous movie. . But. People are complicated. And this book is, more than a love story, about the people in Hong Kong and China during that time. . Was having trouble photographing the book, so I ended up throwing all this jewelry, handmade by me, around it for a “romantic” look (hopefully)! . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #vintagebooks #vintagepaperback #pulpcover #oldbooks #oldbook #hansuyin #amanysplendoredthing #loveisamanysplendoredthing #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #bookcollector #bibliophile #bookish
I really love pulp covers! . Malay Woman (1954) by A. S. Fleischman was a lucky find on eBay. (Spoiler: She isn’t actually a Malay woman.) . Mystery/suspense isn’t my usual genre, but I enjoyed what I read so far. Jock is wanted for a murder he didn’t commit, and he escapes Sumatra for Malaya where he gets mixed up in a murder plot with Communists and sexy women and, oh my head is spinning. . Fleischman’s experience in this region came from his years in the navy. I was surprised to learn he had a background in magic, and that he was a prolific children’s book writer (under the name Sid Fleischman) who published over 40 books for kids. . (Friends joked that the book’s tag line describes a different Malay woman, our infamous former First Lady. I had to laugh.) . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #vintagebooks #vintagepaperback #oldbooks #pulpnovel #pulpcover #asfleischman #bookworm #booklover #booknerd #bookcollector #bibliophile
