The Dangerous Lives of Models

by Enoch Bolles

Sometime glamorous.  Sometimes sordid.  Sometimes dangerous.  The life of the model has always been a popular subject for the pulps.  Below are some pulp covers that deal not only with the experience of being model but also the weight of being an artist.   There’s a price for everything.

  1. Love these “pulp fiction” covers…at The Last Bookstore in downtown Los Angeles, they have an entire section with these books…original covers and “dime” price tags too!
