History of Horror Illustrations from the Pulp Magazines
A non fiction book by Peter Haining
A horrifying trip back to the days of the pulps, penny dreadfuls and other periodicals (like Amazing Stories, Famous Fantastic Mysteries, Strand, Weird Tales), as seen through the highly imaginative illustrations of their stories. Discover works by illustrators Hannes Bok, Frank Paul, Margaret Brundage, Mary Byfield, Howard Pyle and more, many unseen for decades. The literate, highly readable text traces the development of these publications from the first Gothic Novels (of which Frankenstein is the best-known) in the early nineteenth century, to the lurid Victorian stories of scandal, torture and sadism, to the sensational American pulps of the thirties and forties.
