John Harris was born in 1948 and studied at Exeter College of Art, graduating in 1970. Over the last 40 years and more, he has created book covers for many of the most iconic authors in Science Fiction such as Arthur C, Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Frederick Pohl and Orson Scott Card. His work is collected internationally and a piece commissioned by NASA hangs in the Kennedy Space Center and is part of the Smithsonian Collection. In 2015, he won the Chesley Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement. Three films about him have recently been completed and can be viewed online. The latest book about his work, Beyond the Horizon, is currently in its second edition.
