Vintage Pulp Mar 14 2022
I came in for a quick pick-me-up. Now I just have to decide who.

We could have added this cover for Arthur Jacmi's 1958 novel Les affriolantes to our recent collection of women in bars, but it especially appealed to us, with its femme fatale sipping a drink through a straw, so we decided to give it a separate post. It was painted by Jihel, a pseudonym for French caricaturist Jacques Leclerq. There was another JihelFrench caricaturist Jacques Camille Lardie. Lately he's had a revival, so when you look up Jihel online you'll get more hits on Lardie than on Leclerq, but they were different people. When you look up Arthur Jacmi you'll find that virtually no info about him exists. That's a real shame. We won't be able to make more quips about his name. C'est la vie. See more Jihel here and here.
