  1. THE ART OF RAFAEL DESOTO
    $44.95

    This is the consummate art book on the life of pulp, paperback, and men's adventure magazine artist Rafael DeSoto, with reproductions taken directly from DeSoto's original paintings, as well as working drawings, reference photos, rare proof sheets of pulp and paperback covers, as well as historic family photos. He began drawing pulp covers in 1932 and because he was 4F, was one of very few pulp artists to work through the war years. He worked in pulps until the very end in the early 1950s, while expanding into doing paperback covers for Ace, Bantam, Dell, Lion, Signet, and Pocket Books, including the iconic "H Is For Heroin." He also worked for the slicks and for men's magazines. Learn More

Sophisticated, with imaginative compositions, brilliant use of color, superb draftsmanship, and good taste, his pictures represented the "Good Life" in the post-war U.S. They are nearly all most notable for their glamorous women--the ideal of American youth, sophistication and beauty. The ladies are feisty, independent, know their own minds...the product of the new found weath and leisure of America in the 1950s and 60s. Learn More

His work appeared in Collier's, Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping, Ladies' Home Journal, Redbook, The Saturday Evening Post and other leading magazines. Over 300 stunning illustrations. Learn More
  10. ILLUSTRATION MAGAZINE #59
    $15.00

    This issue of Illustration features the sexy pin-up and science fiction art of the brilliant H.W. McCauley, who is as relatively unknown, except among hardcore pulp art collectors, as he is brilliant. He is an usung master illustrator. This cover feature showcases numerous examples of his original art, printed covers, and rare, previously unpublished photographs. Lots of sexy sci-fi ladies, as he was also a master of the pin-up image. Next up are the automotive illustrations of Peter Helck, known for his thrilling racing art. And we discover the work of Gilbert Bundy, famous for his humorous slick magazine illustrations of the 30s and 40s. Learn More
