"Bohemian Stud Bums" Original Art.
Okay, so I've shared two sleaze illustration art originals from the same publishing company. Now, let's get to the third, "Bohemian Stud Bums" (1966) by Carlo Torres. This imprint is "Royal Line" and the number is RL128. Oh to be a bohemian AND a stud AND a bum...that character must have quite the life. I wonder if Kerouac ever saw any of these wacky beat-exploitation pulps?
Beat-exploitation is the genre that first got me interested in collecting vintage paperbacks. And I also met my husband through collecting vintage paperbacks. Without beat exploitation, my life would be very different. Thanks beat exploitation writers for a job well one! Where would I be without you?
