Women in Crime


Instead of featuring one artist for today’s artist profile, I’m instead featuring a magazine.  Women in Crime was a pulp magazine that was published in the 1940s and the 1950s.  While the covers, with their emphasis on lingerie and cleavage, were obviously designed to appeal to men, I like that they often feature strong women who know what they want and, whether it means using their looks or a gun, aren’t afraid to go after it.  Check a few of them out below:
