Akron Ohio is the seat for a new Pulp endeavor created by a group of local NASA engineers.
Pulp Images Saving Science Fiction Robots One Damsel At A Time
A team of 5 NASA scientists bring their out of this world Savvy to saving American Pulp
Akron, OHIO- Pulp Images is gearing up on Kickstarter to preserve over 20,000 images from Pulp history. The group hopes to preserve not only the colored images, but also the inside cover of black and white images as well. They have recently launched their Kickstarter campaign to raise $25,000 in order to fund a website, and digitally scan these images as well as restore them.
Pulp Images was created by a group of NASA engineers who have always had an affinity for science fiction pulp. The history of pulp has been rooted in Jules Vern, a legendary author and in the early magazines of the twentieth century. Pulp art is the illustrations from magazine covers published from the 1890ís to the 1960ís. These covers are slowly fading into history, and because of that the group was formed to save them.
Pulp images has been devoting years to this project, and have so far scanned many images on their own. With the use of Kickstarter, the company plans to start a new phase in the preservation of these important pieces of Americana.
Most Kickstarter campaigns operate under an all or nothing idea, so if Pulpimages.com doesnít reach their goal of $25,000 the preservation will be stopped. To follow their project find them on Twitter (@Pulpimages) and Facebook.com/Pulpimages and spread the word on your social media networks. Consider trying to donate as little as $1 to start the project. If you want to donate more, you can be the first among your friends to be featured on a actual cover from Pulp Americana.
