The Rupert Adventure Series was published approximately quarterly and ran from 1948 to 1963 at the cost of 1/- (5p).
The all card covered booklets were 250mm x 180 mm with 20 to 24 pages. The stories featured were mainly specially written for the series.
These were illustrated byAlfred Bestall and by Enid Ash and Alex Cubie with the heads of Rupert and chums sometimes filled in by Alfred Bestall. Enid Ash also illustrated most of the covers and Alex Cubie designed and detailed a number of the puzzles.
Similar in format to the Adventure Series, in 1973 Beaverbrook Newspapers Ltd produced two Adventure Books priced at 15p.
