Iconic Covers

Very quick note: In posting breaking news ‘blinks’ about the deaths of Don Punchantz and Dean Ellis (since Locus HQ probably won’t post official obits until Monday), I couldn’t help but seek out images of what to me are iconic covers for certain SF classics — which is to say, theirs were the covers on the editions of those books I first acquired myself, in the late 1960s, and however many editions may have followed, and despite my acquaintance with actual first editions of those titles, those covers have remained for me the essential images of those books. (I even scanned my copy of that Bantam edition of The Martian Chronicles, since the images I found via Google Images looked too shabby). Life is subjective.
