Take a walk on the dangerous side of the street with these pulp covers from artist Frank Cozzarelli. I could not find much biographical information on Cozzarelli but all of the work of his that I was able to find was from the 1950s. As you can tell from the examples below, his covers were lively and detailed and included everything that we associate with the pulp era: tough guys, beautiful women, and danger around every corner!
My favorites are the covers for Murder! and Manhunt.

What would you like to know about Frank Cozzarelli ? I’d be happy to help. He was my uncle ; my father’s brother. He was a wonderful artist and he left us too soon.
Kathy Cozzarelli is my daughter and Frank is my brother .He passed away 1979 after emergency surgery for an aortic dissection. Never had a chance to reach his full potential. We miss him yet. Interesting side light , I posed for him many times and can be recognizes in many of his paintings. James D Cozzarelli MD
I’m Joe Cozzarelli and Frank was a cousin on my dad Frank Cozzarelli. We went to Brooklyn in 1974 or 75 when I was about 13. Frank was very cool. A true Renaissance man. He showed us his paintings, sculptures and pottery. He actually gave me what he called a left handed cup. I still have it and admire it often.
It was a day of stories. A great memory
