The Covers of Famous Detective Cases


Famous Detective Cases was a true crime magazine that was published from March of 1935 to October of 1936.  Like most crime magazines of the era, it featured stories about unsolved crimes, gangsters, murder, and public scandal.  Unlike the more flamboyant style that was favored by other true crime magazines of the era, the covers of Famous Detective Cases tended to take almost an expressionist approach to its subject matter.

Below are the covers of Famous Detective Cases.  I don’t know the identity of any of the artists who worked on these covers but if I find out, this post will be updated.

(My two personal favorites are the shadowy covers for June and December.)
