A few vintage paperbacks I found recently.  Love how this one pretends to be a “documentary” while exploiting mental illness for a few cheap thrills.

Inventive Art Direction (below), no?

Not so great Art Direction (below)– red on orange doesn’t exactly make your title scream out (or perhaps it’s not the title they want us focussing on?)

This gives new meaning to “Raging Bull.”

Love the copy on the back:

    Fantastic collection! Incredible art direction all the way around. Fantastic color palettes as well. I especially love Martian Sexpot and the way the point of the star blocks out any nipple action. I think I’d start reading that one first.
