Just found this... http://web2.airmail.net/tharvia/hugo_novels_by_year.html .
It's possible to drill by year and see the covers of each year's winners.
I don't know enough about the actual covers for each edition to assess 100% accuracy, or if they widget new covers (eg from amazon) like LT does.

However the change in art styles over time seems consistentwith someone finding the covers for those actual editions.

Imagine the sheer dedication to cover art to run a site like that, even with the defined scope.

The covers seem to be the first American covers the works published as a novel. I thought some of the early nominees were first published in serial form in the SF magazines of the time. (rechecking some of the covers are indeed magazines)

revision - I don't think the earliest cover of A deepness in the Sky, among others, had "Hugo award winner - Best Novel" on the cover!

It is interesting (for me at least) to compare these covers with mine, which may be found by searching for the tag "Hugo * novel 1970" substituting the year required. (* is needed to get both the winner and the ballot list). Also I am missing eight nominees.

p.s. artist are identified in tags where known.
