December, 1926. It was 1926, but it is still surprising to realize that this cover was displayed publicly (no brown wrapper) without any fuss. Clare Winger Harris responded to the story contest, wrote The Fate of the Posedonia and became the first woman to be published under her own name within the pages of Amazing Stories. Regardless, it’s still a pretty provocative cover, kind of in line with the work Margaret Brundage would do for Weird Tales a few years later.
Our posters are produced from high resolution scans of actual collected issues of the magazine. You’ll notice that sometimes the names or some of the illustration or even the title gets cropped a little tight – this was the result of the manner in which these pulps were bound and printed.
This is an authentic pulp magazine cover poster.
We’ve made them available in two sizes – 24″x36″ and 18″x24″, on heavy duty poster stock, suitable for framing or tacking to the wall.
(Note that the images on the website and in our store are lower resolution reproductions. The posters themselves are printed from 600 dpi color scans.)
