Continuing on designing modern day book covers for my Ian Fleming Bond novels i present, ”From Russia with Love”. By far the best written of the #007 novels it was also listed by President Kennedy’s as one of his top 10 favorite books, and Fleming his favorite author. The first 1/4 of the book Felming writes in great details about the life and horrors of living in the Russian KGB. The story revolves around the Russian’s deciding they need a major victory against the west so they decide to take out England’s top agent. For the Russian’s its just not enough to assassinate Bond, this conspiracy involves staging a sexual blackmail and murder suicide to disgrace the Double O agent. In the re-imaging of these covers I try to keep the tone of the story, the perceived color palette i see in my head, and most of all the Bond Girl and Villain from the movie adaptation. In this case I made sure to keep Robert Shaw’s chilling performance as the Soviet’s chief Chief Executioner, Red Grant, or Red Granitza or “The Red Granite Man”.
