The Supplement: James Bond Reissue Book Covers

With the imminent release of Sam Mendes' new Bond adventure, Skyfall, Ian Fleming's original novels are being reissued by Vintage here in the UK and by Amazon in the US.  It's a minimalist graphic-design smack-down between the two companies, and they're compared and contrasted here for viewing pleasure.  Saul Bass looms large - never a bad thing - and the best of these just go to prove that sometimes there's nothing more chic than a bit of text and lots of negative space!
