This tri-lingual collection catalog presents 162 science-fiction books of the series “Goldmanns Weltraum Taschenbücher” (’60ies & ’70ies), with covers designed by German illustrator Eyke Volkmer. It documents a very unique period in German science-fiction illustration that was almost forgotten.
Included are a long interview conducted with the illustrator in his former studio in Munich and a a full bibliography. All text is printed in English, German and Spanish.
All covers are presented through photos taken of the actual books with all their wear and tear to document my collection. The covers in this catalog are pictured in less than the original size.
