IMAGE OF THE WEEK
Art for unnamed science fiction novel, circa 1952.
Jayme Lynn Blaschke linked this gallery of SF cover art from a line of what appear to be adventure-packed space operas published in the 1950s, and this image on the gallery's front page especially caught my eye. I couldn't find any information as to what book this particular image hails from, but there it is. This is the essence of the old chestnut that "the Golden Age of Science Fiction is twelve".
(These to be precisely the kinds of books that would feature a protagonist named "Jay Manifold", by the way. And PZ Myers agrees with me!)
