Future Classics

I’m obsessed with the Gollancz/Orion “Future Classics” collection. UK SF Book News has an interview with Gollancz editor Simon Spanton on the series.

I’ve had no luck figuring out who exactly was behind these covers (beyond “the Orion Books Art Department”). Can any UK readers who have gotten their filthy mitts on them help?

A similar Space Opera collection is coming out sometime in 2009! I’ve got space-ants in my space-pants.

  1. “I make no apology for singling out the most excellent Emma Wallace in our art department who was responsible for all the Future Classics covers. It’s work that has already been noted and applauded in the design press.”

    the second pic looks like it’s is of the skylon, which was a sculpture/industrial object thing at the festival of britain.
