Science fiction has always been about visions as much as ideas, and a new illustrated book, Sci-Fi Art: A Graphic History, surveys the landmarks of the sci-fi arts over the last 150 years. It is coming out January 2009.

Sci-Fi Art: A Graphic History traces the evolution of this popular art form from some of the earliest illustrations of the works of Jules Verne and HG Wells, through the classic cover art of the pulp magazines of the 1920s and 30s, to paperbacks in the 1960s and 70s, right up to contemporary film posters.

There are chapters on sci-fi art in every medium including comic books from around the world, great movie and TV concept art, toys, RPGs, and video games. Various artists are represented, from Chris Foss, Jim Burns and David Mattingly to Moebius, Albert Robida and Frank Kelly Freas.
