    If you look at the images, you can tell the diff between the ones that are homages, & those that are real. The top three may have used ref, but the others used models & mostly primary colors to attract people that walked by the newsstand.

    Pulp art is apart of my interests!

    Ooh er... there's three of mine in there! All a bit old now... I would definitely use models if I were to do them again, but I was never trying to pass them off as originals anyway.

    They look fine though Aly, well suited to the period feel.

    'She looked like a lady...but her lovers knew better!' had me spitting my tea - that didn't travel well...

    The strap lines are great Des! I reckon they must have had SO much fun coming up with them. There's loads here I've not seen before, nice and big too.

    Modern reissues of pulp, or hard-boiled fiction is published by HARD CASE CRIME
    who use artists like Robert McGinnis, Greg Manchess and Glen Orbik. They really capture the feel perfectly, not surprising as McGinnis did them for real.

    Edit: After browsing the gallery, I've found loads of HCC covers at really high res!

    I think my personal favourite pulp cover is this one by Al Rossi. It's not necessarily the best painted, or the best referenced, but it captures loads of energy and is just perfect! William Lee is a pseudonym for William S. Burroughs.

    HC also does reprints of out of print crime books.

    Charles is a really good guy.

    Thanks

    Hey guys, glad you like the covers. That site is only a few months old, and it doesn't get much feedback, so it is nice to see some people taking an interest in these covers. A few points I wanted to make:
    1) The vast majority of the covers are vintage, but a handful are new and deliberately retro. These are all tagged "Retro".
    2) I actually have all of the Hard Case Crime covers. Not scans, but the original digital files that were sent to the printer. They are tagged Hard Case Crime.
    3) In addition to the paperbacks, I have a lot of very old pulp magazines. Check out Doc Savage and Terror Tales, in particular.
