In the “But is it pulp?” department:

Illustration art from comics, pulps and books

Eyes on the stars

The pulp magazines were printed on cheap paper, their covers were often colored brightly and done amateurishly. But there’s nothing like those vintage covers to tickle your sense of wonder. Here are 47 of them, in high-resolution, by Frank R. Paul
The same site has artworks by Tom Lovell, Norman Saunders, Emery Clarke, H. L. Parkhurst, Earle K. Bergey, Ed Valigursky,
George Gross, Margaret Brundage, Rafael de Soto and of course, Virgil Finlay.

Why work when you can ooh and aah over what’s on screen?
