Read "James Bond Series Designs" at Dan Mogford Design & Art Direction.
The first two John Gardner paperback reprints, Licence Renewed and For Special Services, are due for release in the UK on Thursday.
Check out our special Gardner Renewed page for links and the latest release dates for all the Gardner-Bond reprints in the U.S. and UK.
Thanks to Luke Freeman for the tip!
Looks good! Might be my favourite cover so far.ReplyDelete
I do hope a proofreader got their hands on the back cover of Licence Renewed before it went to print, though. Typos aplenty!
I hope they have proof read it to! Thanks for the heads up on this.Delete
Apart from the 'L' missing in literary what else have you spotted? I thought weaponry was wrong but it is not and revitalised is the UK spelling. Just need to know of others I may have missed.Delete
Jeffery Deaver's name is spelled incorrectly. It was also spelled incorrectly on the recent hardcover reprints. Oops!Delete
In the quote at the top of the cover, there's a hyphen on one side and a dash on the other side of "a blunt instrument". (That's pedantry, but it does look messy.)
The first sentence is a bit convoluted as well, but I suppose it works.
Deaver's name is spelled correct on the actual book.Delete
In fact, all of the above errors have been corrected. Nice work, Orion!Delete
John I have been informed by ORION that this jacket has not been approved and should not be posted. They have requested that it should be taken down until such a time the approved version has been released. ThanksReplyDelete
Done. I've also taken it off Facebook.Delete
Maybe we still have time to get an aircraft carrier on there instead of a jet? ;)
"Deaver's name is spelled correct on the actual book."ReplyDelete
Which book JC?
The Licence Renewed UK paperback. The one pictured above. But Deaver's name is now correct. Looks like all the typos were corrected.Delete
Am I right in thinking that Dan Mogfords designs are also used on the US Edtions. I always though that Michael Fusco's artwork was to be used for the US edtions. Fusco being the chap behind Benson's anthologiesReplyDelete
Shatterhand, the US paperbacks were announced with art by Fusco but this was scrapped for unknown reasons (although the reaction to the art on forums wasn't very positive). The US are now using something very similar to the UK but with tiny differences.ReplyDelete
See blogs posts from October 12th 2011 (US) and
February 2nd 2012 (UK) for differences.
