Weekly Giveaway – “Like A Hot Kiss On The End Of A Warm Fist”

With a huge shout out to Firesign Theater and Nick Danger, the above line delivers a fitting entry into the world of Pulp Fiction.
[photopress:586_cover_1.jpg,full,alignright] This week we have a very cool collection of photographs by Thomas Allen titled “Uncovered”.
By taking the detective pulp novels of the 50s, and extracting the images from the cover, he has created a new tableau.
His deft hand on the depth of field and the 3D use of the cut-outs, retells the storys that made people like Mickey Spillane famous.
We first were introduced to the work through Foley Gallery of NYC, actually at a previous PhotoLA.[photopress:22b.jpg,full,centered] © Thomas Allen
This unique volume is made in a thick card stock, and the cover utilizes this with a die cut cheesecake image of a va-va-voom woman of the fantasy era.
Aperture published this volume and also offers a great price on a print created especially for them.
