         late 1800’s – mid 1950’s

Pulp fiction novels were famous for their colorful book cover art that drew buyers attention. So success were Pulp covers, that even some non-pulp novels were given Pulp make-overs by publishers looking to sell to a wider audience. And as we writers know...after the writing, after the editing, after finding an agent and/or's all about sales.  
             When I read 1984, I don't remember sexy blouses                                                          


I actually like the original cover art but can see 
the mass appeal of the Pulp version.



Look!  Even Papa got Pulped!

   Hmm? Which cover appeals more to you?


I have no idea what this cover art means. Do you?


FYI...this is the version I read in fifth grade when I was ten. 



Obviously an eye-popping-appealing difference.

I think I like the updated versions better. And not necessarily the ones with sexy blouses. Lol. Thanks for stopping by Unicorn Bell! :)

I read all the boring editions :)

But it keep me from focusing only on the cover...

1984 with sexy blouses-nope! lol

For the most part I prefer the updates, but I kinda like the Catcher in the Rye older version~

I always find it funny when it stories set in dystopian futures are either near, at, or well after the date.

I guess this might bring new readers to the classics. I remember reading comic book versions of classic novels.

Crazy covers! Funny how the cover of the Catcher in the Rye makes him look 40 years old!
