How I learned to stop worrying and love the blog. » Haha….what??

Haha….what??

women.jpgApparently Little Women was reimagined as a pulp fiction novel, I’m guessing in the 50’s when smut got big.  I’ll do some research, but for now I just really enjoy this cover.

Update — well this isn’t the goldmine I was hoping for, and the backstory isn’t very exciting on this precious cover.  It appears that sometime in March of 2006 there was a contest wherein book designers created pulp covers for classic literary works, Little Women being among them.  I find it interesting that the artist for this cover (Rebecca Cohen, Coco Co.) made the cover actually look aged and well-read, dog-eared and loved for several years.

Check out the other 5, including the Illiad and Alice in Wonderland (my other personal favorite).  http://www.slate.com/id/2142392/
