Added Info

Especially commissioned for Fantasy Film review in 1969, this incredible one-off piece gloriously showcases the film 2001 A Space Odyssey. Eddie Jones's artwork now commands high prices and this acrylic on board image is without doubt the most significant piece of work by the artist.

I believe the '67 number on the front depicts the magazine number of where the artwork was shown. For more information on the artist Eddie Jones please read the below from Wikipedia.

Edward John Jones (18 January 1935 – 15 October 1999) was a British science fiction illustrator; initially known as a fan artist, he later became a professional freelancer. He illustrated numerous science fiction book and magazine covers, some under the pseudonym S. Fantoni, and provided interior illustrations for books and magazines. Jones was active in the field from 1953 to 1985, and reprints of his artwork continued to appear on book covers until his death in 1999.

In 1969, he became the art editor for Vision of Tomorrow, a short-lived British SF magazine. Although probably best known for his Star Trek covers for Bantam Books and almost fifty covers for Sphere Books, much of his output was for German publishers, including more than 100 covers for Bastei Lübbe's science fiction imprint and over 500 for Terra Astra magazine.[1]

The Science Fiction Writers of America described Jones as "the precursor to a generation of artists that helped define the look of early '70s SF illustration"

Grade

C8. – Very Fine. The artwork was once pinned up as it shows pinholes in the white borders. There are some scuff marks in the white areas.
