Bond Girls for the 21st Century (But Only in England)

jamesbond-covers.jpg

Everybody’s making a big to-do about Devil May Care, the Sebastian Faulks-penned James Bond thriller Doubleday‘s releasing this week, but there’s even cooler news from England, where visual artist Michael Gillette has created covers for all of Ian Fleming‘s original novels, reissued by Penguin in new deluxe hardcover editions—for the UK market only, at least for the time being. Which is a shame, because Gillette’s gallery of “Bond Girls” is way cooler than the faux pulp imagery of the current US paperback editions, shown off to the sides.

Some of Gillette’s artwork is included in “Bond Bound,” an exhibition of Bond book art currenly showing in London with New York and Los Angeles gallery dates scheduled for later this year.
