Chris Foss signing at Forbidden Planet

Forbidden Planet is hosting a signing with Chris Foss for Hardware, the definitive collection of his SF art, at the Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Thursday 21 July from 6.00’7.00 pm.

‘Exploding into prominence in the early ’70s, Foss’s aesthetic became the defining template for how we pictured the hardware of tomorrow. Dramatically raising the bar for realism and invention, his trademark battle-weary spacecraft, dramatic alien landscapes, blisteringly bright explosions and crumbling architecture irrevocably changed the aesthetic of science fiction art and cinema.’
