9781848566989: Hardware: The Definitive SF Works of Chris Foss

Foss’s groundbreaking and distinctive science fiction art revolutionized paperback covers in the 1970s and 80s.  Dramatically 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.

Featuring work for books by Isaac Asimov, E. E. ‘Doc’ Smith, Arthur C. Clarke, A. E. Van Vogt and Philip K. Dick, and film design for Ridley Scott and Stanley Kubrick, this volume brings together many rare and classic images that have never been seen or reprinted before. The first comprehensive retrospective of Chris Foss’s SF career.

“Chris Foss’ name has become pre-eminent among sf artists... He is in love with the monstrous, with angular momentum, with inertia-free projectiles and irresistable objects.”Brian Aldiss

“[Foss’] creations are real machines, not just an artist’s dreams. They combine the two elements so essential to science fiction: realism and a sense of wonder... A medieval goldsmith of future eons.”Alejandro Jodorowsky

About the Author :

Chris Foss's evocative science fiction book covers pioneered a much-imitated style featuring vast, colourful spaceships, machines and cities. He also illustrated the original black and white edition of The Joy of Sex. He produced the UK pb covers for Asimov’s Foundation Trilogy, worked with H.R. Geiger on concepts for the unrealised Jodorowsky Dune movie and on Alien, as well as on Superman.

Rian Hughes is an award-winning graphic designer, illustrator, font designer and comics artist, noted for his work on 2000AD, and Dan Dare. His illustration work is highly distinctive, wearing its design influences on its sleeve. Clients include Virgin Airways, Penguin Books, DC Comics (for whom he has designed numerous logos), Eurostar, the BBC and a range of magazines and newspapers. He is the editor and designer of several books including Lifestyle Illustration of the 60s and the recently released Cult-ure.

"One of the most successful and prolific designer/illustrators of the past 20 years."Roger Sabin, Eye magazine

Review :

"An incredible selection of Foss' work." - io9

"An indispensable collection of out-there space art." - SciFi Bulletin

"There's a real sense of wonder all over this book and personally, I still find it all very inspiring. [Hardware] truly is a terrific book and certainly highly, highly recommended." - The Trades

"A great art book, and one you should definitely own... this belongs on your coffee table next to the work of other great artists like Ansel Adams and Roy Lichtenstein." - Never Not a Nerd

"I was constantly blown away by Foss’s ability to turn fiction into reality. [Foss’s art is] full of things we’ll likely never see but it looks so authentic, like a history book of the future. It’s grounded in such a reality that you can’t help but believe it might be real." - Very Aware

"... this book will turn you into a fan..." - We Love Cult

"I absolutely love this thing." - Topless Robot
