Quest - Adventures in the World of Science.jpg

Quest was a collectable magazine published by Marshall Cavendish as part of their 'Partworks' educational range[1] from the late 1980s and early 1990s, covering a range of science and technology related topics, such as construction, cities, transport and drugs. The magazine was available in fortnightly, hole-punched editions which would often come with a collectable element, such as playing cards for a 'trivial pursuit-like game'[2] or cardboard models. There were 60 magazines - enough to fill three official binders which came with special editions of the magazine.[3]

The articles in each part were categorized under six topics: The Living World, Planet Earth, Futures, Energy and Resources, New Technology, and Space Frontiers.
