Art by Virgil Finlay for the cover of Famous Fantastic Mysteries from the early 1940s. I want to point out something that seems to be misunderstood about pulp art. Pulp art is art from pulp magazines. This sounds obvious but it is constantly misused. Pulp is fiction printed on pulp pager in magazine form. This was done from the 1890s to the 1950s. I consistently see vintage movie posters, paperback covers, cheesecake pinup, vintage slasher horror and smut called “pulp art” on social media. Not all of this is bad art but it ain’t pulp. If the art is from after the 50s, it’s not pulp art. Sorry about the rant. I look at art like the above and just want to keep pulps pure. Isn’t Finlay the best!? . . . . . #vintagepulps #pulp #pulpmagazine #pulpart #esoterica #illustration #illustrationart #vintage #retro #virgilfinlay

💀💤 Hypnos and Thanatos in Paradise, mixed media hand cut collage. . . How wonderful is Death, Death, and his brother Sleep! One, pale as yonder waning moon With lips of lurid blue; The other, rosy as the morn When throned on ocean’s wave It blushes o’er the world; Yet both so passing wonderful! -Percy Bysshe Shelley #analogcollage #handcutcollage #michaelpajón #thanatos #hypnos #sleepanddeath #handmadecollage #artonpaper #artofpaper #collageartist #greekvase #mythology #vintagepulps #surrealistcollage #artanddesign

This is the title of Sir Fantasm. I picked this up a while ago but I have no idea what it is or who the artist is. I think it is a Spanish Dime novel / penny dreadful from the late 1800s / early 1900s. Does anyone out there know more about this. I’ll post the full cover in my “story”. . . . . . #vintagepulps #pulp #pulpmagazine #pulpart #esoterica #illustration #illustrationart #vintage #retro #dimenovel #pennydreadful #sirfantasm

Did you know: Nick Carter was a pulpy P.I. before a late career switch to “Backstreet Boy”? #totallynottrue . . . This 1935 cover of “Nick Carter” is uncredited, but likely painted by George Gross.

DOCTOR DEATH 3/1935 Artist: Jay McArdle (James Nivison McArdle) Illustration published within the weird-menace / science fiction pulp magazine DOCTOR DEATH 💀 The author for the "Doctor Death" stories is given as "Zorro;" this in fact was Harold Ward. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Doctor Death is Dr. Rance Mandarin, formerly a professor at Yale University and now a master of the occult with an insane hatred of scientific progress and industrialization. He believes it is his mission to return the world to a blissful primitive state, which he attempts to do with the aid of zombies, elementals, dissolution rays and communist heavies. He hopes to reduce the human population, and return us to the stone age. Opposing Doctor Death is an organization known as the Secret Twelve, led by supernatural detective Jimmy Holm, with the President of the United States himself as its figurehead....

Bond: "The Monster" • "The Ring" • "The Enchanted Pencil" • "The Mask of Medusa" •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• For those that collect and read PAPERBACK PARADE, flip through issue 63 and you'll find an article concerning GNOME PRESS paperbacks, the Korean War "Armed Service Editions." Of the four titles presented, one is a collection on Bond. There you'll find MY comments on the book. If you don't own a copy, get one, and read it. Copies readily abound for fair prices.

Mid 1940s Startling Stories cover detail by Earle Bergey. . . . . . #vintagepulps #pulp #pulpmagazine #pulpart #esoterica #illustration #illustrationart #vintage #retro #earlebergey
I’m pretty sure this is by Earle Bergey but I do not see a signature. If my memory hold up, this was done for the cover story “The Lovers” by Phillip Jose Farmer and was the first love story between a human and alien. Anyone out there know if my memory is wrong? It could be. Anyway, this is from its publication in Startling Stories. . . . . . #vintagepulps #pulp #pulpmagazine #pulpart #esoterica #illustration #illustrationart #vintage #retro #earlebergey #philipjosefarmer

"Land of Hidden Death" by Justin Atholl. Cover artist: unknown Publisher: Everybody's Books This WW2-published, 9-pence paper-rationed tale involves a lost race of Incans, etc. Preston Yorke was the alias of Thomas Sidney Denham; he also wrote as Sidney Denham and as Arthur Armstrong. He and his wife were also nationally renown for their books on cats. They did not have any children. One of my greatest thrills was completing a set of wartime booklets under the Atholl alias. #everybodysbooks #justinatholl #thomassidneydenham #sidneydenham #britishpulpfiction #vintagepulp #vintagepulps #vintagebook #vintagebooks #pulp #pulps #pulpfiction #crimefiction #detectivefiction #murdermystery #illustration #skull #skulls #calavera #skullsofinstagram #corpse #cadaver #grimreaper #retro #vintage #antique #bibliophile #lostrace #lostcivilization #worldwartwo
