Originally published September 16th, 2013: One of our favorite sites, 50watts' has a running feature where they showcase Japanese science-fiction scans from their ever-growing collections of books and catalogs on Japanese illustration and design. We love looking through old book illustrations, and the sci-fi genre always is chalk-full of he most surreal, colorful, and bizarre. This is a fantastic collection of obscure artists and their fantastic imaginations that you would otherwise never see!

Head over to 50watts to get the full list of artist's names and see even more of the collection!
