A mere glimpse of the lurid fare on show at Pulp Covers – a collection of titillating, frequently misogynistic, occasionally hilarious, invariably lesbian-fixated book covers of the ‘adult read’ genre.

Go for the covers, stay for the taglines:

‘A Story That Cannot Be Discussed In Mixed Company’

‘Her pagan desires violated even the loose moral code of the marshlands!’

‘Love That Made a Panty-Waist Into a Man’

And many more.

A short documentary interview uploaded back in March featuring images from the late 60s and early 70s by photographer, naturalist and Coombe-born, Mick Brown.

Mick, who has lived in Pembrokeshire, West Wales for more than forty years, recalls his childhood and the street life of the Liberties in Dublin – an accompaniment to his book ‘Mick Brown’s Dublin: The Past has a Great Future’ .

The Chemin de fer de Petite Ceinture (‘Little Belt Railway’) in Paris, built in 1852, largely abandoned since 1935 (aside from one increasingly underused section), lovingly documented since 2011 by photographer Pierre Folk.

As local developers eyeball the land for new apartments and office blocks, Parisian railway enthusiasts want it preserved, possibly transformed into a series of urban parkways like the nearby Promenade Plantée which inspired New York’s High Line.

Vintage photos deftly remixed (Terry Gillam style, but no less worthy for that) into hilarious gifs by Brooklyn artist and animator Cari Vander Yacht, who acquires the random shots in thrift shops, then scans and converts them. Sez she:

At a certain point, one must justify their creepy acquisition of other people’s pasts. Either you make up stories about how you’re related to the people in the pictures or you animate them.
