Handle With Care

Oh the abuse pulp magazines took to survive 70 or 80 years. First they were thumbed to death, especially the spicy pulps that bore repeated 'reading'. Then if they weren't tossed out in the trash they were left to molder for decades in the attic. Here's a fabulous Bolles cover in anything but fabulous shape. I'm pretty good with Photoshop but reanimating this was beyond my abilities. Not so with my pal, TJ. Take a look below at what he was able to do with this cover. Simply amazing! Honestly she never looked this good in real life. TJ has a site where you can download lots of other pinup and glamour art, and he'll be soon adding a Bolles section. The site is intended for grownups so be forewarned.

Great work Jack, but your link leads to a dead end. Is there another link you can provide? :)

Alas, I've lost touch with TJ. If I regain contact or find his site I'll let you know.
