Ok, let's see how long I'm allowed to let this photo stay up before some big-time lawyer demands it removed. But since this site warrants nary a single blip even on the periphery of the big radar screen of blogdom, maybe we'll manage to fly off into the sunset undetected.
Anyhow...in today's edition of the New York Times there's an interesting review of a new show at the Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators featuring Robert Lesser's pulp painting collection. It's a nice follow-up and high society validation of what we have known all along, namely that it really is ok to love pulp art. Indeed, the article acknowledges how pulp art resonates with both historic and modern cultural themes.
