Wow, what a great find - Dalton is always rare to see on paperback.

Timothy Dalton was the favourite Bond of the hungarian translator (András Gáspár), and he told that to the painters of the cover (the famous hungarian illustrators: Zoltán Boros&Gábor Szikszai, who are painting Word of Warcraft game cards nowdays)

And here is a little "insidie joke":
The translator of Fleming's Thunderball, András Gáspár is a famous fantasy/scifi writer in Hungary.
In his novel's cover (In Death's Month) there is a steampunk-fantasy hero, Tier Nan Gorduin - with the face of Timothy Dalton!
