New Ian Fleming Covers

The new cover designs have been revealed for
Ian Fleming's series of James Bond novels due to be republished
by Penguin this year. To
coincide with the Ian Fleming centenary, all 14 novels will be
re-released in hardback under the Penguin 007

Originally from Wales but now based in San Francisco, USA, Gillette
some of the world's biggest clients including Capitol Records,
Greenpeace, Levi and MTV. Of his latest work for Bond, Gillette
wrote on his blog, "Ahh the The 60's. When I was a kid,
I thought this was what illustration was all about - setting
the type and
drawing the images for books."
