Step into the world of sedutive women, violent men, passionate embraces, dark secrets and blood on the page. Here is the first-ever postcard book collection of paperback cover art from the 40s and 50s, the golden age of the pulp era, containing 31 detachable reproductions of the covers from such classics as THE BIG SLEEP, BUTTERFIELD 8, GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, and such campy titles as BEHIND THE FLYING SAUCERS, MUSK, HASHISH AND BLOOD and THE HAUNTED HOTEL.
