Artwork of the Day: Big-Town Hellcat (Artist Unknown)


Artist Unknown

This was published in 1957.  One thing that always amuses me about covers like this one is how surprised we’re supposed to be that a woman can have a job.  It’s not enough that this is a book about the love life of a disc jockey.  The cover makes sure that we know it’s about a “girl disc jockey.”

She’s also a “Big-Town Hellcat,” which I guess is better than being a “small town hellcat’ but not up to the level of being a “city hellcat.”  I can’t help but notice the man on the cover is offering her a cigarette but not a light.  Maybe that’s why they’ve got that fire roaring in the fireplace.

Unfortunately, the identity of the artist of this cover is unknown.
