BOOK REVIEW – Hardware: The Definitive SF Works of Chris Foss

By Marty Mulrooney

Hardware: The Definitive SF Works of Chris Foss

Chris Foss is a British artist and illustrator whose groundbreaking artwork revolutionised science fiction book covers of the 1970s and 80s. His cover art often depicted looming mechanical spacecraft – the ‘hardware’ of this book’s title – superimposed over vast alien landscapes. 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.
