The Science Fantasy Stamp Book

Space Fantasy Commemorative Stamp Booklet
by Stephen Hickman
1994 Hugo Winner for Best Original Artwork

I have to confess that this was much easier to acquire than I thought it would be. I read the name initially as a booklet for collecting stamps, not a booklet of U.S. postage stamps as it turned out to be. And the last thing I expected was a pulp SF homage.

Hickman has a cleaner version of the painting on his website but I wanted a scan of the booklet cover in this case.

I know it's a bit faded and there's a bit more to the original image so definitely check out Hickman's original.
