Vintage Technology: Bric-a-brac Vintage Science Fiction Cover Art (1954-1987) - help wanted!

I love reading Sci-Fi and I also appreciate the wonderful cover-art that tries to sum up the whole story in one image, or just randomly looks sci-fi - so here are some of my favourites. I have a special interest in 1960-80s science-fiction covers - which are so difficult to attribute.
So, the goal of this section is to find the artists - so please get in touch and help with any info and your cover scans!
This collection is listed by artist (when known) and by author (so you can see the various interpretations of a story) and by publisher (so you can see cover design themes and development). Most are UK books. Dates quoted are of the particular edition shown, so art may be earlier. Please note that copyright is fully attributed to these artists and the publisher and further dissemination is not allowed without their express permission. However, cover art has been processed by me to correct defects (so these particular images are (c) me as well), but may not be 100% accurate. Additionally I will include Sci-Fi theme comments and extra notes about the stories. I would love people to submit covers (I will process and clean up images) to add to this database - but I will ask many questions of you to fill in the details.
Wanted: Information on unknown artists and scans please!
