    These powerful, minimal designs with a fauvist-esque palette are a small selection of the art of Eyke Volkmer a German graphic artist and illustrator. During the 1960s and 1970s, Eyke worked closely with publishing house Wilhelm Goldmann, and during this period produced a total of 162 airbrushed covers for the SF series “Goldmanns Weltraum Taschenbücher” and another seventy covers for the series “Goldmanns Zukunftsromane”, his publisher once remarked to Volkmer: “It doesn’t look like that in outer space” but encouraged him to follow and develop his unique and prolific style.

    All of the covers designed by Volkmer are archived in this brilliant web archive.
