You’ve admired Dave Seeley’s art in the past, whether you realize it or not. He’s done cover art for so many space opera and military science fiction books, his gorgeous style is synonymous with cool action. And now there’s a whole book of his thrilling artworks.

We’re stoked to be able to share some exclusive images from The Art of Dave Seeley, a fancy art book from Insight Editions. In addition to some book covers you’re bound to recognize, Seeley has also done art for Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica and Aliens vs. Predator. Some of the cheesecake art in the book is a little too, er, emphatic for my taste (although I got nuthin’ against pin-up art, generally), but his spaceships and mechs are generally top notch. See for yourself!

These are definitely really cool. I’m not sure who does Orbit’s US covers, but I really love a lot of them. (specifically the Ancillary series, The Expanse, and seemingly the later US edition of many Culture novels)

I still have a really soft spot for Michael Whelan’s covers though. They are really beautiful.
