I remember the first time I saw some of Peter Elson’s work (alongside many others) in beautiful hardback books. I think the various artists works were collectively know as ‘The Young Artists’ and helped illustrate the collection of short stories about space. I always, always remember Peters work above his peers, as it just seemed so grounded/feasible despite the futuristic subject matter - simply stunning. I still have 2 of these books which feature some of Peters work. Both are dog eared but much loved - Great Space Battles and Spacewreck ghostships and derlicts of space. Thanks for your beautiful work Peter.

Fantastic spaceship design. How did George Lucas not hire Elson?
