Spaceships From 1970s British SF Paperbacks, Part 2

(I'll post artists' attributions for this and the previous set a little later. And yes, I know the machine on the cover of The Caltraps of Time might well be a futuristic jet fighter. Exception/rules/whatever.)

They're wonderful covers. What's horribly depressing is the fact that the natural home of such books from the 70s now -- at least if you wanted to buy them "easily" on the high street -- should be charity stores. But the sad fact is that charity stores tend to throw them away without them ever having made it to the shelves. Nice to see those images again, though.

A lot of these images are also in a series of large format books by Stewart Cowley (Spacecraft 2000 to 2100 AD, Great Space Battles, Spacewreck, and Starliners). The books were published in the late 1970s. Good stuff!

Do you have any Perry Rhodan covers?

Afraid not, boaphac. There's a good selection here, though.
