Featuring book covers made for such prolific science fiction writers as Isaac Asimov, E. E. ‘Doc’ Smith, Arthur C. Clarke, A. E. Van Vogt and Philip K. Dick, as well as design work for film directors such as Ridley Scott and Stanley Kubrick, Hardware: The Definitive SF Works of Chris Foss offers a comprehensive retrospective of Foss’s career to date.
