Taormina Pulp Fiction

I decided to have some fun with a spoof, pulp-fiction paperback cover to an imaginary spin-off book.

There's a bigger version of this over on the Taormina blog where you can see the cover in better detail.

I did some searching around for covers from mass market paperbacks to help with this, I hope I've struck the right balance.

I would say that you definitely hit the right marks with this one, Kev. Great job on the art, NO, I mean really great job on the cover art.

Now, I want to read this paperback.

The retro feel is perfect on! This really adds value to your 'main feature'. I think the limited palette is particularly effective. Was there a range of Taormina plup paperbacks published way back in the 30's??? Hope so!

WOW!!! You really hit the nail on the head...what a perfectly classic feel to this!!!
