CLICKBAIT!: A Treasure Trove of Pulp Fiction Cover Art

May 22 @ 10:00 am - September 1 @ 5:00 pm

Sex, war, communists, cowboys, and killers. What do these all have in common? With the advent of cheap, mass production of books and magazines, these shocking subjects dominated popular American literature in the mid-20th century. Cover artists had a rather different, and challenging job- transforming pulp authors’ words into visually dynamic scenes that would grab potential readers’ attention and entice them into making a purchase. See a sampling of these over-the-top visuals that function as analog clickbait beginning on May 21.

Clickbait! runs through September 1.
