Fabulous covers from the ‘Golden Age’ of Lesbian pulp fiction 1935-65 The covers often mixed lurid and sensationalist images with suggestive taglines.
"Flirt" book purse
"Flirt" book purse Is it a book? Is it a purse? It's both!! This fun purse has a pulp novel cover as the outside of the purse. The sides are a fuzzy leopard print material and the handle has a cute hanging dice detail. There is some slight damage to the bottom corners (see 6th and 7th photo). Bags
The cover says on the bottom right, "The novel that dares to tell the truth about a perverse love." It makes their, the two women on the cover, love seem both seductive and exotic. The women are facing towards the reader, rather than towards each other. This makes it feel like their "Queer Affair" is a spectacle for the reader, rather than for each other.
