Vintage Science Fiction Art

 

Every future fiction and vision of tomorrow requires a situation in which actions occur and ideas develop, the set on which characters act and react - new worlds contrived. At the end of the nineteenth century when mass-marketed magazines like The Strand in London and Munsey's in New York began to regularly offer rudimentary, illustrated, science-based fiction, and especially after the 1926 launch of Amazing Stories, the first all science fiction magazine, the future needed to be repeatedly designed by artists who could delineate it with pencils, pens and brushes. The future had to look like something and the tradition of science fiction art began in earnest.

The Out of Time collection of vintage science fiction art, assembled, curated for the Smithsonian Institution, and published by Norman Brosterman, was acquired in 2000 by the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame in Seattle. While vintage science fiction art from before 1960 is extremely rare, we sometimes locate prime examples to offer for sale. Please inquire with any questions.
