Amazon.com and BN.com have posted the Richie Fahey cover art for the next three Ian Fleming reprints from Penguin: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, You Only Live Twice, and The Spy Who Loved Me.
CBn gave Bond fans the first look at these covers back in May. Of note is that the cover of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service seems to have undergone a design change. Not only is the title font new, but the snow motif now extends behind the title where before it was cut off by a blue diagonal stripe.
BN.com originally showed an August 28 release for the books, but has now changed that to September 28. As this is in line with what Amazon has always listed, it suggests the August date was simply a mistake on the part of BN.com, and does not indicate any “delay” on the part of the publisher.
Below is a “before and after” look at the On Her Majesty’s Secret Service cover:
