Design: Manhunt Crime Magazine

Manhunt Detective Story Monthly – A hugely popular pulp that ran from 1953 to the mid-60′s. I look at these mostly for the beautiful illustration/paintings and overall design but the authors they published were pretty amazing, Mickey Spillane,Henry Kane, James T. Farrell, James M. Cain and Erskine Caldwell. All were either famous at the time or soon to be. Once again, it seems as if all the women on the covers are in trouble but I have a feeling the men got their come-uppance.
