Fake Vintage Book Covers 2: Death Came Slow
A stunningly beautiful woman, an evocative title and a sensational blurb…
FAKE VINTAGE BOOK COVERS is a tribute to the American pulp magazines and paperbacks from the fifties and sixties.
Specifically to the art of Robert McGinnis and Robert Maguire, whose subjects weren’t mere damsels in distress but elegant, sexy and intelligent women.
Belgian artist KRISTOF SPAEY takes these elements, spices them up with humour, seasons them with smart references to pop culture and serves you his unique interpretation of this recipe.
"They are truly little gems!"
- Robert McGinnis
