The Best Scifi Book Covers Of All Time — And Space

Here's a gorgeous detail from Michael Whelan's cover art for Arthur C. Clarke's 2010: Odyssey Two. It has everything, the giant blue baby head, the spaceship, the sillhouette of Jupiter, and that sexy, sexy obelisk. The folks over at LibraryThing are having a discussion of their favorite science fiction book covers, and it's introduced me to some amazing classic — and recent — cover art that I hadn't seen before.
