The genius of the poster for Pulp Fiction is that it’s not really a poster for Pulp Fiction. James Verdesoto’s poster has little in common with the film other than Uma Thurman’s Mia Wallace, which is exactly what a film inspired by pulp novels needed to be. The beat-up design, 10 cent sticker, and poorly shopped-in props recall the novels from which Tarantino drew inspiration and add a nostalgic air of mystery around what you’re going to discover as soon as you turn the page. Add to it a stacked cast list and a distinct title font and you’ve got a poster that echoes the shocks Pulp Fiction sent through the film industry when it came out.
