60 Best Pulp Fiction Covers Of All Time

Pulp Fiction refers to cheap mass market paperbacks published from the 1950s to 1970s. The term was popularized by the 1994 film of the same title.

Pulp Fiction was usually priced at 10 cents in the early 1950s. By the late 1970s, the price was up to 95 cents. At such a low price, Pulp Fiction was designed to sell plenty of copies ... the pervasive themes were sex, crime and Sci-fi.

Publishers of Pulp Fiction often put more thought into cover art than quality writing. In fact, Pulp Fiction cover art is amongst the most imaginative and under-rated art around. (some of the writing was good as well)
