John Berkey is famous for doing concept design for the original Star Wars movie, including a breathtaking poster of the Death Star. When he wasn't imagining space battles, he designed cities of the future - on Earth and in space.


Some of these citiscapes are incredibly rare images from Berkey that are rarely reprinted - others are iconic images of space ships that you may recognize. I also love the strange Japanese King Kong game packaging. His King Kong looks almost like he's merging with the building he's scaling. If you're a fan of googie architecture, you'll notice that his cities are all done in that futuristic style which was so popular in the 50s and 60s.
