Edward Valigursky (1926-2009)

Noted commercial illustrator Edward Valigursky died September 7 at the age of 82.

He worked as an art director or did covers for Amazing Stories, IF and Fantastic Adventures in the 1950s and 1960s.

Decades ago when I haunted used bookstores looking for old prozines I remember how impressed I was with this cover from an issue of If. Ken Steacy’s site has several examples of Valigursky’s work.
