Young Bond in China

Browsing Amazon’s Chinese website today, I stumbled on these very unique Chinese editions of the first three Young Bond novels by Charlie Higson.

Published in 2008, the three books definitely do their own thing in regards to cover art. But if you look closely, each cover includes a special identifier besides just color and number.

Within each of those Young Bond police badges is a unique image. Book 1, SilverFin, shows an image of Bond and Wilder on a horse (also used on an earlier Chinese edition); book 2, Blood Fever, shows a pirate ship; and book 3, Double or Die, has what appears to be a cemetery.

I wasn’t able to turn up a copy of Hurricane Gold on the site.
