I recently had a post from OMNI magazine from Eric Carl’s collection on flickr. I had have another post of his finds but I couldn’t fit all of it in one post. These book covers are from his Classi Sci-Fi and Fantasy set and contain works form the 1960s to the early 1980s. I absolutely love looking at these because there was so much imagination put into illustrating the covers. It’s like a breath of fresh air looking at these beautiful classic covers compared to the modern-day computer illustrated Sci-Fi covers. On top of that the wear and tear of these books really adds a nice touch on the fact that these books only look better as they age. I checked ebay and you can actually still find copies of these…I really need to pick up a few if not all of them.
