I know there's a pulp tradition of having sexy women on the cover, but is it also a tradition that book illustrators don't read the books too closely?

************ The covers often had some relation to the book content, but accuracy was by no means a requirement. And for what the artists were normally paid, I doubt many felt compelled to read the books they did the covers for. So in answer to your question, my guess would be that pulp tradition was that the artists rarely read the books they illustrated.
