    I just uploaded some covers into the cover art gallery.

    If you look at the writer's names that appear on the covers it brings back memories.

    I will be googling for a while on those. I wonder how many of the stories are available for free now? I bet Fantastic Fiction has alot of them!

    Robert Sheckley
    Willy Ley
    Alfred Bester

    Skwirlinator, good to see if you noticed I added the new category. :cool: I added it last night but didn't mention it because I didn't have a chance to go through the rest of the categories to movie any existing uploads into the new category.

    I think one of the reasons why I was drawn to scif-fi & fantasy books of the 60's and 70's was because of the covers. There were just so many covers done by contempary artists that I think it really is a medium that deserves more attention.

    i bought some "book cover prints" on ebay once, laminated to use as small pictures in my study area, hung on wall.

    what i got was colour printouts on matt white bog standard paper, laminated. the blue was incorrect and so i realised i got counterfeit "prints"

    dependent on area of sales and year of publishing/reprint you see different covers available, noticeable on www.fantasticfiction.com and it's always amusing to see the first prints available with books when you hold in your hands a more modern reprinting.

    a good print is worthy of a good book, but thats not what i go on when i buy a book. the author, the theme/genre and especially the blurb on the back of the book, thats what makes me buy it!
