Artwork of the Day: The Six-Weekers (by Ernest “Darcy” Chiriacka)


by Ernest “Darcy” Chiriacka

This book was first published in 1962.  Judging from the blurb, the main message seems to be that women should stay out of Las Vegas.  Not only will it cause them to get a quickie divorce but the atmosphere was created to “stimulate their passions and play upon their need for men!”  Divorce was still considered to be scandalous in 1962 so it should came as no surprise that it was the topic of several pulp novels during the era.  Las Vegas, with its quickie weddings and quickie divorces, was the city of sin.  I’m just wondering how they managed to find a beach in Nevada.

This cover was done by Ernest “Darcy” Chiriacka, much of whose work has been shared on this site in the past..
