The Most Beautiful Pulp Magazine Cover Art We've Ever Seen

Robot uprisings, demon armies, women fighting dragons and men striding the cosmos have never looked cooler, or lovelier, than in the pulp magazine cover art going on display at the University of Connecticut. Beware: Some of it is quite spicy.

UConn's Benton Museum is hosting a massive exhibition showcasing the Robert Lesser Collection of Pulp Art. Called "From Amazing Stories to Weird Tales: Covering Pulp Fiction," the exhibition includes a ton of original pulp cover art in amazing quality. They've put up nearly 500 of these images online, and here are a bunch of our favorites. [via Vogue Immunity]
