This tawdry and seductive original artwork was illustrated for use as the cover of the 1951 Cameo Books title The Loves of Alice Brandt, part of the publisher's "love fiction" line. Cameo was an imprint of Detective House Publishers in New York which was a major producer of digest sized pulp novels during the period when this first appeared on train station newsstands to offer illicit thrills to weary commuters. Cover slug reads Wives without husbands are dangerous - Especially when they're as wild and wicked as Alice Brandt!.
