Frank R. Paul was an early illustrator of science fiction magazine covers. Although technically not a very good artist, he was richly imaginative and his images had an enormous influence on the iconography of science fiction. You still see echoes of his work today.

These images are taken from the Frank R. Paul gallery, which discusses each image as well as having detail views. There are more samples after the jump, and many more at the Paul gallery.
