For all you pulp magazine cover fans out there, the University of Connecticut is hosting one of the largest collections of Pulp Fiction art in the world. The Robert Lesser Collection at UCONN showcases some of the most fantastical and provocative pulp magazine covers ever created.

The pulp covers contrast the cheap paper that they were made on by representing dystopian and often lurid content in sensational art. This gallery is a must see for Pulp magazine fans.

Implications - With robot uprisings, demon armies, and women fighting dragons abound, pulp magazine fans will be inspired by this collection put on display by the professors and curators at the University of Connecticut.
