Pedro Marques, proprietor of the most excellent bilingual book cover/design blog Montag, recently drew my attention to the work of a mysterious designer I had never heard of. His name is Terry James, and Pedro had found a series of the covers he had done for the now defunct British Science Fiction Book Club in the 1960s.
In attempting to find out more about him, we discovered that he had also done a lot of work for the British Reader's Union reprint book club, at least until 1970. Unfortunately, we don't know where to go next to discover more. It doesn't help that any attempt to track him down online is frustrated by the omnipresence of a Christian end-times fanatic writer of the same name. So, does anyone out there know any more about him?
Pedro Marques, by the way, is himself a talented designer: see his work here.
