MEXICAN PULP ART: From the Collections of Bobbette Axelrod and Ted Frankel - Lurid Mexican Vintage Paintings

MEXICAN PULP ART - From the Collections of Bobbette Axelrod and Ted Frankel

The lurid cover art of Mexican pulp novels is a pop culture revelation. Never before seen in an English or even Spanish-language collection are these surreal and psychedelic images of extraterrestrials, robots, dinosaurs, dastardly killers, beatniks, babes, Zorro, Santo, and many other icons from vintage Mexican pulp novels involving suspense, mystery, romance, space, monsters, damsels in distress and the supernatural.

This book features some of the most striking paintings from this sensational art form of the ’60s and ’70s, collected by Bobbette Axelrod and Ted Frankel. The Introduction by researcher Maria Cristina Tavera contextualizes these artifacts that were unearthed from a defunct publishing company and its forgotten but inspired work-for-hire artists.

Mexican Pulp Art joins Feral House’s award-winning collections of pop culture art history - rediscovering extraordinary forgotten worlds of visual splendor.
