PICTURE OF THE DAY


Another pulp fiction cover, this time of a Tijuana Casino in the late 20s.  Amazing use of colors, particularly to invert warm and cold.  The lit, bright areas are all in "cold" blues and greens, while the darker shadow areas are in "warm" reds and yellows, the opposite of what is ordinarily done.  And its fascinating how effective it is.
