Chris Foss’s ground-breaking science fiction art revolutionised paperback covers from the early 1970s. 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. He now works from a studio in Guernsey, continuing to experiment with new techniques and mediums.
Hardware: The Definitive SF Works of Chris Foss was published in 2011.
