'From Russia With Love' Decades Edition

CommanderBond.net has revealed cover art for a new edition of From Russia With Love. Part of the Penguin Decades series, the book is due for release in the UK on April 1st.

"Penguin Decades bring you the novels that helped shape modern Britain. When they were published, some were bestsellers, some were considered scandalous, and others were simply misunderstood. All represent their time and helped define their generation, while today each is considered a landmark work of storytelling."

Decent cover, but certainly that Walther P99 is an odd choice. Bond used a Beretta in From Russia With Love. If they wanted to use a Walther, certainly the PPK is the iconic Bond gun of choice. The P99 came into being in 1997 in the Pierce Brosnan Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies. Fans never warmed to it, and Eon wisely brought back the PPK in Quantum of Solace.
