Magazines played a large role in providing a vehicle for both artists and writers to earn a regular income, as well as establishing a growing readership.
Adam, a Sydney-based publication, first appeared in 1946. It was owned by ad-man Kenneth Murray, who created the more risqué girlie magazine Man. Adam featured action, sport and adventure stories, along with numerous cartoons and portrait photographs of models.
Although unsigned, the cover art work was probably done by Phil Belbin or Jack Waugh, regular Adam artists.
