Banner Art Credits
In 2007, the ISFDB began a monthly series of banners as an homage to the seminal magazines of the genre. Each banner contains an ISFDB logo in the style of the magazine, and includes a montage of low-rez clips from representative covers. As of July 2009, we started putting these through a daily rotation. Credits for the clips follow.

Contact me to submit. Artwork needs to be rendered in JPG format for the rotation script to work correctly. Alvonruff 01:03, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
