James Bond & Friends - Episode 0080
7th February 2021
Delve into the Art of Bond with From Russia With Love
By MI6 Staff
What is the legacy of Richard Chopping on Bond's look and feel?
The panel takes a look at the first edition of 'From Russia, With Love' by Richard Chopping. Why is it such a striking piece of art and how did covers that followed it emulate it? Then, each panelist introduces another dusk jacket or cover art for the same title worthy of praise, or merely of interest. Along the way, the panel discovers mysterious murders, art behind the Iron Curtain, the disappearing comma, and Soul Bass Bond.
