Colonel Sun Artwork

Source illustration for the cover of "Colonel Sun" by Tom Adams.

Comments to this illustration: "This image is a strange hybrid, both artistic and literary. The Bond story was commissioned by Jonathan Cape from Kingsley Amis, masquerading as Ian Fleming (after Fleming's death) under the pseudonym, Robert Markham. In the same spirit Tom Adams' cover painting masqueraded as Salvador Dali!"
