'HARDWARE: The Definitive SF works of Chris Foss' is now out
Foss' ground breaking and distinctive science fiction art revolutionized paperback covers in the 1970s and 80s. Dramatically raising the bar for realism and invention, his trademark battle-weary spacecraft, dramatic alien landscapes and crumbling brutalist architecture irrevocably changed the aesthetic of science fiction art and cinema. Featuring work for books by Isaac Asimov, E. E. Doc Smith, Arthur C. Clarke, A. E. Van Vogt and Philip K. Dick, and film design for Ridley Scott and Stanley Kubrick, this volume brings together many rare and classic images that have never been seen or reprinted before. Edited and designed by long-time Foss aficionado Rian Hughes, this is the first comprehensive retrospective of Chris Foss SF career. "It was a labour of love - hunting down old books, unearthing forgotten paintings, and where original art was not available reconstructing it from the printed version."
A limited edition comes in a transparent slipcase, with a limited edition print and an extra 8-page cover gallery section.
A reserve edition of 100 copies also includes an original Foss drawing. Buy on Amazon
