Edward Daniel Cartier, known professionally as Edd Cartier, was an American pulp magazine illustrator who specialized in science fiction and fantasy art. Cartier studied at Pratt Institute, and following his 1936 graduation, his artwork was published in Street and Smith publications, including The Shadow, to which he contributed many interior illustrations, and the John W. Campbell, Jr.-edited magazines Astounding Science Fiction, Doc Savage Magazine and Unknown. His work later appeared in other magazines, including Planet Stories, Fantastic Adventures and other pulps.

Cartier served in World War II, and he was severely wounded in the Battle of the Bulge. He returned to the United States and attended the Pratt Institute again on the G.I. Bill, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1953. In the post-war years, he continued providing illustrations for Astounding and also for Gnome Press and Fantasy Press.

However, low pay for such illustrations led Cartier into employment as a draftsman for an engineering firm during the 1950s. He worked for more than 25 years as an art director with Mosstype, a Waldwick, New Jersey, manufacturer specializing in printing machinery.

Cartier received the 1992 World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement Award, and in 1996 and 2001, he was nominated for Retro Hugo Awards for artwork published in 1945 and 1951.
