Peter Jones - Solar Wind
In the Bronze Age, any sci-fi / fantasy book that didn't have a cover by Chris' Foss or Achilleos, had to by law have one by Peter Jones. Solar Wind, a collection of Jones' best covers, came out in 1980 from Paper Tiger, who I'm sure were a division of Dragon's Dream, champion printer of deluxe fantasy art books.
Some of the pictures here are absolutely iconic to those of us who spent our formative years haunting second hand bookshops, buying sci-fi paperbacks just 'cos we liked the covers.
See how many you remember, or just groove on Jones' edgy, twisted, dark universe view.
