3 ZIMET, JAYE Strange Sisters. The Art of Lesbian Pulp Fiction 1949 - 1969
New York Viking Studio 1999 
First Edition. Paperback Original. Signed by the author, Ann Bannon, a novelist of this lesbian paperback original golden age, who contributed the foreword. Oversize format. Illustrated throughout in full-color. As new. A collection of 200 examples of cover art from the bold and the campy sub-genre of lesbian pulp fiction. With titles like Odd Girl Out, We Walk Alone Through Lesbos' Lonely Groves, Warped Desire, Deviate Wife, Satan Was a Lesbian, etc. it's clear that the target audience from the publisher's point of view was male, but for many lesbians of the time these books offered a welcome chance to identify with a community. From the foreword by Ann Bannon: ...women learned to recognize what was a nascent literature of their own by reading the covers iconically. Despite all their editorially imposed quirks, the covers provided links among members of a wide-flung and incohesive community; a community that did not even think of itself as one and that, therefore, valued all the more any connection with others whose experience paralleled their own. A fascinating and entertaining work.
