"Starting in 1932, Margaret Brundage, wife of leftist revolutionary Slim
Brundage, -- who she met at the wildly-bohemian Dil Pickle Club during the
Chicago Renaissance -- forever changed the look of Fantasy and Horror with her
alluring, sensationalistic covers for the legendary pulp magazine, Weird Tales.
Brundage, whose art contemporaries include Virgil Finlay and Hannes Bok, is
unique as she


was the first female cover artist of the pulp era. Decades before the gothic
fetish craze, Brundage's lush, provocative paintings, which frequently featured
smoldering, semi-nude young women bearing whips, became a focus of acute
attention and controversy. At the very peak of the notorious pulp's classic run,
the magazine's appeal was due as much to Brundage's covers as to the stories
inside by famous authors H. P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, Robert Bloch and
Conan creator, Robert E. Howard. Long before Frazetta, it was Brundage who was the very 1st Conan cover artist. The Alluring Art of Margaret Brundage is the
premier book devoted to this noted artist and features all of her Weird Tales
and Conan covers.


Authors and compilers Stephen D. Korshak and J. David Spurlock follow their
seminal collaboration, The Paintings of J. Allen St. John -- Grand Master of
Fantasy, with The Alluring Art of Margaret Brundage which, also features essays
by noted artist Rowena, Weird Tales historian Robert Weinberg, First-Fandom
member / Shasta publisher Melvin Korshak, and Men's Adventure Magazines: In
Postwar America co-author George Hagenauer.


All editions feature big, 9" x 12" lavish illustrated, full-color pages with
text."
