Peter Elson

Peter Elson (1947-1998) was an English science fiction illustrator whose work appeared on the covers of numerous science fiction paperback novels, as well as in the Terran Trade Authority series of illustrated books. Elson, whose illustrations often placed detailed, brightly-liveried spacecraft against vividly colored backgrounds, influenced an entire generation of science fiction illustrators and concept artists.
