Edgar Rice Burroughs' 
by PosterText
This A Princess of Mars poster is created using the entire text from the book.

The words of A Princess of Mars are splattered across the page here in an explosive spurt of energy that seamlessly and breathlessly fuses this work of art together. In this illustration, the daring and valiant John Carter prepares to face an enormous and alien foe. Muscles converge beneath rippling skin of the lionhearted hero as he gathers himself for what could be his final battle. Although outweighed and outsized, John Carter faces his enemy with an unfazed and steady gait – prepared to fight for the greatest cause of all: true love. In this art print, the beginnings of a legendary conflict take shape as the Earthman and the Martian clash under the gaze of the far-off and hazy Barsoom moons.

A Princess of Mars is a story which reveals that love, regardless of where in the universe it takes place, remains strong through time and distance. This literary poster zealously captures this tale of action and love, and displays with bold fervor the spirit of the greatest love story our solar system has ever known.

Edgar Rice Burroughs'
by PosterText
Tarzan of the Apes poster is created using the first 19 chapters of the book.

Using only the accomplished prose of Edgar Rice Burroughs, our Tarzan of the Apes poster creates a stunning portrait of the title hero himself: part man and part beast, overlooking the dangerous jungle which he will soon claim as his own. Shown here tightly gripping his father’s knife, the illuminating detail of this design reveals a strong and detailed protagonist, burdened by his ongoing struggle between nature and nurture.

A multifaceted story of hardship, survival, and love, Tarzan of the Apes remains one of the most important and engaging books yet written. Through this beautifully crafted illustration, the power and majesty of one of literature’s great noble characters can now co-exist with your walls at home or at the office, serving as an impressive reminder of the animal in all of us.
TEXT COVERED:  19 chapters of the book

Pulpdom Online #5 is now available for download
Pulpdom #75, August, 2013, was the final traditional printed-on-paper issue.
Since then Pulpdom Online has continued the fundamental purpose of celebrating and investigating pulp magazines and their authors.
Pulpdom evolved from ERB-dom (first issue, May, 1960),
which was a magazine about Edgar Rice Burroughs, the most famous pulp magazine writer of all time.
ERB-dom lasted 89 issues, ending in 1976.
In 1988, Caz restarted The Fantasy Collector, with a name change to The Fantastic Collector,
which re-incorporated ERB-dom, and finally the name change to Pulpdom in January 1997.

ERBzine has created an online illustrated bibliography of
the ERB-dom issues and a Caz Profile.

In the early '50s Australian radio imported the Tarzan radio show from America. 

After they had aired 104 of these episodes they produced 1040 12-minute episodes of their own serial -- 
Tarzan, King of the Apes. 
The series started about 1953 and many of the storylines were based upon ERB's books. 
The most intriguing thing about these shows is that they starred Rod Taylor. 

Rod Taylor became famous across Australia for his performance as Tarzan. 
The show aired at 6 p.m. Monday to Friday in 1954.
It was one of many action-adventure serials for young listeners that were so popular in the 1950s. 
Other actors took over the Tarzan role after Rod left the show 
to become a popular Hollywood film actor.
