Original Diamonds Are Forever Artwork

Original artwork for the cover of the US Signet paperback edition of "Diamonds Are Forever". Artwork by Barye Phillips (Thanks Rick).
 
The painting was originally owned by Anne Fleming. She gave it to Mr and Mrs Beckett - who worked for the Fleming's - as a retirement present in 1974.

All these Signet paperback illustrations were done by Barye Phillips. Wish he'd done more full size 007 covers (he did some of the earlier paintings for the first 50's editions) but I love the classic design of these 60's paperbacks. Rick Greene
