This post features covers from the pulp magazine Adventure and are taken from the MagazineArt archive. Adventure was published from 1910 until 1966 and featured adventure fiction, most of it nautical or western themes. Although, around 1915 it looks like it may have flirted with being more of a women's romance magazine.

U ntil the very end of its run the covers aren't titillating like most pulps. They feature very few buxom, half-naked women in distress. In fact, many of them are very minimal and actually are quite nice graphics.

There are more covers after the jump, and many, many more at the MagazineArt archive

Also, if you like this post you may also like Man's Life magazine covers or Babies for sale, both featuring pulp magazine covers from the MagazineArt archives.
