Packaging: Popular Library Pulp Covers – Women in Peril

Popular Libray was a New York publishing company in the 40’s and 50’s that specialized primarily in mysteries. By the looks of things they liked to terrorize the ladies. Great titles, great artwork, great taglines – “An illicit love turns into multiple murder”. Popular Library published other genres, western, sea adventures, etc, but these Women in Peril covers are their best – though I still am a bit troubled by the Campus Town cover – “She defied their moral code”?
