100 classic comics

Here's a great alternative take on 1950s design: The Art of Classic Comics contains '100 Postcards from the Fabulous Fifties'. 

Coming in an attractive presentation box, these postcards are drawn from a range of reading material, with colourful covers promising "stirring stories of real romance", as seen on Lovelorn magazine, as well as explorations of the supernatural, gruesome crime stories, the tragedy of war and the imaginative worlds of science fiction. 

Each a striking piece of artwork in its own right, this pulp fiction that really captures the hopes and fears of the decade. For enthusiasts, or those keen to discover more, each postcard is also printed with the title, date and publisher of each comic, as well as providing details of the artist responsible for the cover. 

The set costs £14.99 from Amazon
