Romance Book Jackets from the 1920s and 1930s
Compiled by Steven Heller
The sensual female, decked out in Jazz-Age finery, was a typical cover girl of romance novels from the 1920s and 1930s. These ten iconic images feature sirens and seductresses (The Woman Who Commanded 500,000,000 Men and A Passionate Rebel), and good girls gone bad ("a country girl who followed love's beckoning call to a great city") as well as the occasional shrinking violet (Wallflowers). Twenty notecards with envelopes in a keepsake box, two each of ten images; also available as a book of 20 detachable postcards, 4" x 6".
