John Berkey is one of those names that you should know, but probably don’t. I’ll bet every single one of you have seen one of his paintings. Maybe it was in an absurdly inaccurate futurist magazine that insisted we’d all be crossing the Atlantic underwater in Jetships by 1994. Or maybe it was the illustrations he did for the original Star Wars. Dude had some serious chops.
Check out this gallery for more of his work in hi-res, or this collection for some totally absurd 80s novel covers. The first gallery is Hungarian, so, you know, watch yourself in there.
