Wednesday's Forgotten Pulp: ARTISTS AND MODELS STORIES

They probably thought it was a good idea at the time.

These are the only two issues I could find on Galactic Central. From 1929, it was a bedsheet published by Ramer Reviews out of Illinois.

I'm pretty sure that if i come with a magazine title, there is apulp having it already.

Nudge, nudge, wink wink! They most likely thought it was a good idea because the common misconception of that time that artist's models were "loose" women. Just a hunch, not my opinion.
Good choice though, never would have thought of it myself. Ramer Reviews was an anagram of Frank Armer's last name. He also published Broadway Nights, Ginger Stories,Real Story Book,Spicy Stories,Wow and Pep Stories.
All info came fom "Uncovered, The Hidden Art of the Girlie Pulps" by Doug Elis.

The Illinois address was actually that of the printers in Mount Morris.
Back then it was Kable, currently Quad Printers is headquartered at that address. Kable was founded in 1898, and that address has been used for printing from at least 1921 to 2011. (Ramer / Armer did his editorial work in NYC)
