Bond Friday - Pentagram Does James Bond




To finish off Bond Friday, I found this work done by Pentagram. This hardcover book of the Bond stories was designed by Angus Hyland and Fabian Harrman. The design is clean, sophisticated and cosmopolitan, so shaken and not stirred.

Angus Hyland and his assistant Fabian Herrmann have designed the hardback edition of Penguin Books’ Quantum of Solace: The Complete James Bond Short Stories. The book collects together all of Ian Fleming’s Bond short stories in a single volume for the first time and includes stories that inspired the Bond film classics From a View to a Kill, For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, The Living Daylights and of course, Quantum of Solace, the latest in the series.

I will be off to spy around the bookstore to find my copy.
