Hundreds of lesbian pulp fiction titles were sold in America from about 1935 to 1966. These erotic novels and their cover art titillated many. As far as cover art goes, they can be broken down into roughly three categories. There are the fairly inconspicuous covers that at a glance may not really undescore the content of the lesbian erotica inside. Then there are the clearly NSFW erotic novel covers with pin-up style nudity, clearly meant to titillate. 

The list below features the third: kinky, BDSM/fetish-influenced lesbian book art. We're talking whips, chains, costumes, sub/dom play, and much, much more. These mid-century illustrators made no attempt to mask or tone down the tawdry content inside, choosing instead to put it on full display.
