German Paperback Art


Cover artwork for the German paperback "007 James Bond und der stumme Zeuge" (Loosely translated "James Bond and the silent witness") published by Super Krimi in 1978. It includes the short stories Octopussy (Der Stumme Zeuge), For Your Eyes Only (Für Sie Persönlich), Risico (Riskante Geschäfte) and The Property of a Lady (Globus - Meistbietend zu Versteigern). Kind of an odd mix of Ian Fleming's short stories. The same artwork was used in the 1975 comic version of Moonraker in Denmark. 

Does anyone know who the artists is? 
Thanks to Dan for sharing this!

It does look like the artist is Jordi Penalva. He painted the covers for many of the early Danish James Bond Comic Books.

Thanks, Rasmus. I can see it know you've said that, it was just a scribble to me before! Well done.
