Penguin 007 = Illustration and Typography heaven

3 Jun

Following the gripping ‘we tell stories’ transmedia campaign from Penguin, here’s yet another post from me about Penguin. They’ve been rather busy of late – leaps ahead of other publishers in my opinion.

They’ve re-issued fourteen of the original Bond novels under the new imprint of Penguin 007.

Here are several of the illustrations. They’ve simply nailed it. The designs, by Michael Gillette and Jon Gray, evokes the earlier Bond flicks. Enjoy more at the Penguin blog here.

    The Man with the Golden Gun art is my favorite.

    These really hit the spot for me. They fit my idea of Fleming’s novels and the oo7 images of my childhood perfectly.
    I’m particularly taken with the rather smouldering Casino Royale cover.
