Have you ever imagined what the different characters in Isaac Asimov's Foundation books might look like ? Thanks to Apple TV+ we will soon be able to put a face to a name for most of the characters. However we have decided to highlight the vision of the artists who have already illustrated them with talent.
So we have listed in alphabetical order the illustrations of different artists around the world.
Please note before viewing the article :
- If you haven't read the books, the article may contain spoilers about the characters if you don't want to know their name in advance.
- For some characters there are of course several different existing illustrations. We decided to choose only one per character. Prioritizing lesser-known illustrations to showcase lesser-known artists.
- If characters in the books are not listed it is because we haven't found an artist who illustrated it. Please feel free to give us a link in the comments section if you find an illustration that is not present in the article. If you want to see all the characters from the books check the full list here.
