Chris Moore's cover artwork for the 1993 UK hardback of the SF Encyclopedia, used at much reduced scale as a logo in the online edition.
A friend of the project asked for a downloadable image that could be printed out in poster or flyer form to promote the Encyclopedia. Judith Clute quickly produced the design below. Click on the image for a full-sized version. This may be freely printed and distributed with our blessing.
