This video is really gorgeous and trippy. Animator Henning M. Lederer (previously) has once again taken vintage paperbacks and put their op-art covers in motion. There are 66 animated covers in total this round.
Lithub has put together a gallery of 50 pulp paperback versions of classic works of literature. "Some are true pulp covers—with overtly sexy women and tantalizing movie-esque taglines," writes Emily Temple, "while others are just amusingly lowbrow mass market treatments of highbrow novels. Either way, they’re even better than you’d expect."
Equally good is Rebecca Romney's gallery of crime novels given the pulp treatment. Example:
Brazilian artist Butcher Billy describes himself as a "pop culture butcher obsessively looking for the perfect cut." I think he's found just that with his latest artworks.
The nine-piece series imagines each episode of Stranger Things 2, from "MADMAX" to "The Gate," as the cover of an 80s-style paperback book. So cool!
The Unexpected Dimension is a 1960 paperback anthology of science fiction short stories by Algis Budrys. It only merits 3 out of 5 stars on Goodreads, and even this 5-star review on Amazon gives me pause: "Budrys is a difficult writer. It usually takes several readings before you can really understand what is going on in his stories." I'll pass, but I give the cover illustration by John Blanchard 5 stars!
