The Covers of Real Western


Real Western was published from 1935 to 1960.  That’s 25 years of stories about rustlers, gunslingers, gamblers, and everything else that went on in the old west.  The covers of Real Western all featured typical western imagery, with an emphasis on guns over romance.  These were stories about manly men who did what a man had to do to keep the west wild but safe.

Below are a few of the covers of Real Western.  Where known, the artist has been credited.
