Thanks to Anne Bentley, our art curator at the Massachusetts Historical Society for this link. Helfond Book Gallery, Ltd. offers a series of images from the underbelly of the rare book world, otherwise known as “bibliopulp” posters riffing on pulp fiction book covers from the mid-twentieth century. I’m personally torn between the “Bibliobimbo” (pictured above), “Rare Book Tramp” and — with a cover that would make Jack Harkness proud — “They Made Me a Book Collector.”
This is awesome! I justed wanted to let you know that I linked to your post on my blog.
Thanks for the link, Saskia :). Glad you enjoyed it!
