Bond Girly

Everything surrounding the 007 empire intrigues me. It continually inspires and influences art, design, literature and film. 

Recently, I came across a new series design for the James Bond books that made me come to a halt (despite my frenzy of christmas shopping, and people weaving). Published by Penguin (so classic), and illustrated by Michael Gillette. Read an interview with Michael here. I LOVE the illustrations and the typography, and I wish I had half the talent of this guy. 

Previously to finding these book covers, I had really enjoyed the typography in Quantum of Solace. To see some screen shots, Doublenaut blogs about that here. Oh and check out their work too. Not Bond related, but also good.
