Paul Lehr (1930 - 1998)

Paul Lehr was born in White Plains, New York in 1930. He dominated science fiction covers in the mid-1960s into the 1970s. Lehr studied illustration at the prestigious Pratt Institute. He contributed significantly to the distinctively imaginative style of SF art during that era, which for some represents the peak of the form's long history. As American publishers came to prefer more realistic art in the 1980s, Lehr focused instead on covers for the sf magazines Analog, Omni, Tomorrow: Speculative Fiction, and Weird Tales as well as covers for foreign publishers.
