The Racy Covers Of Exotic Novel Magazine


Unknown Artist

Exotic Novel Magazine, which described itself as being “America’s Dean of Titillating Fiction” was a bi-monthly digest that was published from 1949 to 1951.  Each issue featured a new novel about bad girls and the men who couldn’t resist them or good girls and the men who tried to corrupt them.  The covers often promised that the novel found within was “uncut” and “uncensored.”

Today, of course, Exotic Novel Magazine is mostly remembered for its covers, which were done by some of the best illustrators working in the pulps.  Below are a few of the exotic covers of Exotic Novel Magazine!  As always, the artist has been credited when known.
