  • Mexican Pulp Art


Never before seen in an English or even Spanish-language collection are the often surreal and psychedelic images of extraterrestrials, robots, dinosaurs, dastardly killers, Zorro, Santo, and many other icons from stories involving suspense, mystery, romance and the supernatural.

Mexican Pulp Art features some of the most striking paintings of this sensational art form of the '60s and '70s, collected by Sister Fun's Bobbette Axelrod and American Visionary Art Museum's Sideshow's Ted Frankel. The Introduction by researcher Maria Cristina Tavera contextualizes these artifacts 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 history Sin-A-Rama: Sleaze Sex Paperbacks of the Sixties, It's A Man's World: Men's Adventure Magazines, The Postwar Pulps and Voluptuous Panic: The Erotic World of Weimar Berlin in rediscovering extraordinary forgotten worlds of visual splendor.
