Sex Sells. And Well, Indeed.

Rosa Is for Romance hosts a gallery of sexy work by Al Rossi, who’s described as “a prolific book and magazine illustrator during the 1940s to 1960s. He was the original cover artist of Junkie, the novel William Burroughs published under the pen-name of William Lee. He was also one of the main cover artists for Beacon.”

One fine book jacket that blog doesn’t happen to include, though, appeared on the 1953 Bantam edition of Air Bridge, by Hammond Innes, “a novel of crime and fanatic courage in the shadow of the Berlin Air Lift.” Click here to see the artwork.

While we’re on the subject of sex, note that the Men’s Pulp Mags blog addresses what someone far fonder of cheesiness than I might call “The Singular Scandal of the Stripped Nazi Sex Slaves.”
