Giallo

by louisagiffard

Inspired by hilarious pulp novels that give away the whole plot on the cover, I made a pulp novel cover for a letterpress project.

Giallo refers to a genre of trashy crime in Italy, because such novels had yellow covers. 

The gun is hand stamped, hand cut lino (well..fake lino), and the shonky type setting is inspired by..the general shonkiness of pulp novels
