Sex & Crime: The Book Cover Art of Benicio, Vol. 1



In stock



This spectacular book features the pulp cover art of Brazil's own Jose Luis Benicio. Published concurrently in his home country of Brazil, this book offers just a sample of Benicio's cover art from a career that spans 60 years and 22,000 book covers! Included here are covers from his most famous series, the sexy spy ZZ7 Brigitte Montfort. As well as his covers from other series and the pin-ups, some in process, that have defined his later career. 

Benicio's style is reminiscent of McGinnis with a splash of Aslan. This book is a great introduction to a great artist and a necessary addition to your mid-century pulp art collection.
