I have just started working on my ideas for pulp fiction and have "almost" decided to limit the text to the word 'Fiction' produced in several different ways from casting, pulp painting watermark and a few others.
My thoughts are to sew these into a case/cover made from a 'sweet valley high' book. My daughter got carried away when she discovered Ebay and has bought hundreds of them, including several double-ups and they definitely can be described as pulp fiction!. My only concern is with the copyright considerations can I use the covers as is? Would it be more acceptable to gesso over the text or to make new covers?
The other thing I'm trying to work out is the size. The books are 10 cm wide by about 18 high. My first mockups are 5 x 10 cm and 6 x 10 cm but now I'm thinking bigger so that they'll be more like 10 x 16 cm I would get three per A4 page so not too many dips for 20 copies.
