Pulp fiction was available at a low price, giving people access to fantasy and science fiction writing, showing development of themes of the time. It introduced authors such as Ray Bradbury, Frank Herbert, Arthur C. Clarke, Robert A. Heinlein, and Isaac Asimov, even John Wyndham in "New Worlds Science Fiction" in 1958, and their novelettes. I have presented a few illustrations, and samples of fonts "herewith".

Development of Typographic Fonts
Cover paper and colouring varied as printing technology, and I assume as affordability developed.
From Elinor Mavor
Placing works of illustrators together, we quickly identify composition and style of each. At that point we see the real excellence of work.
Colour Technology from 1965 - e.g. some pages with blue, others with red, indicating two passes of the same sheet through a print press
Pulp Magazines or Pocket Books provided a vehicle for many men and women to contribute to the story themes, graphics, and font styles we use today.
