Pulp Fiction As Art

Inspired by pop-up books and Viewmasters, artist Thomas Allen sculpts action shots from pulp fiction covers and then takes a picture of the sculpture. His works can be viewed on The Joseph Bellows Gallery website and feature detectives, gunslingers, boxers, femme fatales, and even a few nursery characters. So take a moment to browse these pulp pageturners and imagine what happens next. Like what happens to our handsome hero after he plunges head first off this towering stack of paperback books....
