Where No Fan Has Gone Before

This obviously isn’t crime fiction-related; nor is it even about book covers. But it is about artwork and a new hardcover release, Star Trek: The Art of Juan Ortiz (Titan). It seems that Ortiz, an illustrator/designer for Disney and Warner Bros., has spent years developing movie-style posters for all 79 episodes (plus the pilot) of the original Star Trek TV series. “Drawing inspiration from pulp book covers, advertisements, comic books, and ’60s movie posters, the achievement is impressive to Trekkies and ’60s design fans alike,” says Flavorwire in its look at Ortiz’s efforts.
