Diamonds Are Forever - Artwork

James Bond "Diamonds Are Forever" - Initial illustration by McGinnis, used for the UK and US movie tie-in. This first version was rejected for the general advertsing campaign because Connery appeared to be smaller than the two women.
Artwork used internationally, now Connery has grown.
The Italian design makes Connery even taller and adds some rockets.
