A Gallery of George Salter F&SF Covers

As a graphic designer, George Salter (1897-1967) revolutionized book cover art in Europe and the US. Salter was also F&SF’s first art editor, serving from 1949 to 1958. He designed the original calligraphic logo for F&SF and created the distinctive visual design of the magazine. He also illustrated many of the magazine’s early covers. This February marks the 50th anniversary of his final cover for F&SF, so we thought we’d share a gallery of his work.
