Vintage Pulp Sep 14 2010
These posters look a bit like scenes from our last week.

Above, we have an assortment of posters for Italian sex documentaries, circa 1960s, with art by Manfredo Borsi and others. You may have noticed that of late we’ve had a lot of information-free posts on the site, and this is another one, but we have a good excuse—marriage. Yes, one of the Pulp Intl. cast of thousands got married Friday and so we’ve had a hard time doing the usual research due to the fact that we’ve had our hands full with twenty-six guests who flew in from overseas. When people fly so far, they expect to be entertained, and we’ve done that by getting them involved in situations very much like what you see on these posters. As a side note, we’ve noticed that our traffic is up this week, even though we haven’t had time to write anything. It’s almost like people are trying to tell us they come to the site not for our astounding insights and wry prose, but for the pretty pictures. But that can’t be true, can it? Of course not. Ciao for now.
