Formatted Abstract/Summary
In the second section, Fashion in Media and Literature, books reveal a surprising focus on fashion. Toni Johnson-Woods uses the covers of 1950s pulp fiction books to demonstrate that the sexy dame on the cover was more than something to look at; she was a signifier of the sexual agency of women and the growing fears of men.
