The winning cover is cool, but it looks as if Bond gets shot in that book.

I voted for Gaz1961's cover below... It's beautifully done and car less generic. The winning one could be for any Bond book, he's always a target.

Thank you Dan - very kind of you to say so

I'd be interested to know how you did your cover. Is it painted? (It looks like pastels.) Is it from imagination or based on a photo/model?
If I had to be critical I'd say the font didn't match the mood of the piece but the artwork is just right for Fleming, it could have easily been bookclub art. I look forward to seeing you do Live and Let Die - if you haven't already!

Gaz should've won.

GAZ is it, I'm a designer myself and I love that cover. The oters are somewhat boring.
