A while back Sven posted a link to a flickr stream with some re-imagined movie-2-book covers. Well today I found a site that shows the real thing and oh how glorious they are. I present to you; The Art of Penguin Science Fiction. This site collects science fiction covers published from 1935 to 1977 which is over 150 Penguin sf covers. The transitions that are produced from text only covers to usage of minimal graphics and then to full color trippy surrealist art is amazing. There are multiple versions of some books throughout the decades, like War of The Worlds, Island, or The Black Cloud. This is a must see for any SciFi(Not SyFy) buff and for all graphic designers.
