Very nice but why is it that no Yank can ever spell In Fleming's name correctly? They are littered with other typos too... very lazy - how difficult is it to spell check?

These are terrific, a very simple yet effective style. Selling mistakes are easily fixed. "Albert F. Broccoli" was probably Harry Saltzman's nickname for him, with the F standing for... "Film producer" :)

@John- Apparently the Brits can't spell it either. "In" Fleming? :)

For what it's worth, These were just self assigned design exercises. I noticed the Fleming typos the next day. If I had replaced it, all the links to it would've been broken. If I decide to make prints, the typos will be corrected.

@Dan- Thank you!

These are superb Jason. I always love it when someone creates alternative Bond posters. These capture the feel of poster design from the early sixties very nicely. I especially love the "Dr. No" one and I feel it actually surpasses the original. One suggestion, I would have put the "Dr. No" title in the palm of the hand in white to tighten the graphic even more for example:

Hope you don't mind me tweaking your original.
You did a superb job, and if you are selling prints, let me know.

@John M- Thank you for the kind words.

I don't mind at all. It's an excellent suggestion. I would have to move Ian Fleming's name also, to help keep the design balanced, but I think it would work.

Interesting designs rather spoiled by sloppy spelling, but most definitely NOT James Bond!
