Hardware: The Definitive SF Works of Chris Foss, is the first comprehensive retrospective of science fiction themed works by the artist to date.

This is an absolute ‘must have’ for any science fiction art fan and well deserving of a place on any collectors book shelf.
It’s hard to underestimate the influence of artist Chris Foss on modern science fiction art and illustration. His groundbreaking and distinctive science fiction art revolutionized paperback covers and book jackets in the 1970s and 80s, raising the bar for realism and invention. He pretty much reinvented science fiction art with his battle-weary spacecraft and giant space ships with bright graphical markings and dramatic alien landscapes. We’re sure these works had a major influence on science fiction artists, writers and directors. His works featured on sci-fi classic books by Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, A. E. Van Vogt and Philip K. Dick.
