The latest episode of James Bond & Friends is now available on Apple Podcasts and elsewhere.
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 panellist 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 Saul Bass Bond.
The recording took place on January 29th, 2021 in New Zealand, UK, Germany, and Spain.
