This exposition aims to show the best Sci-Fi covers that appeared on the newsstands from 1926 to the Seventies.  We have done our best to insert HQ images: you can click on the thumbnail to enlarge the picture. As this is a work in progress page, we will add more covers in the coming weeks. From time to time we will change some cover when we find a more detailed or evocative one.
