Gardner's BOND in the era of Brosnan

Here's a 1995 Italian combo edition of John Gardner's Scorpius and Win, Lose or Die. The cover image of Bond is clearly modeled on Connery, but there's also something about it that feels very much like John Gardner's Bond -- older, more conservative, formal. An interesting take on 007 at the dawn of the Brosnan film era.


John Gardner's Scorpius was first published in 1988 (click to see a vintage ad). Win, Lose or Die appeared in 1989.
