ulp magazines” were so called because of the cheap paper they were printed on. Unlike the “slicks”, “pulps” were printed on paper made directly from wood-pulp which would rapidly yellow and disintegrate. This poor quality paper didn’t lend itself to photographs or detailed drawings, but the vibrant cover illustrations went some way to compensate for this. I sorted through around 300 of these facinating, covers from the 1930s and 40s and I hope you agree the final 8 are beautiful pieces of artwork, and evocative of a more innocent, pre, space age period in time.

The scarf is printed on 12mm satin silk which retains the images’ vibrancy and offers an almost double sided effect. Like my other scarves, the generous dimensions of 190cm x 62cm, means that it can be worn as a shawl or scrunched to bring a splash of colour to an everyday outfit.
