These are great, we're so fortunate you have this blog ... many of the covers featured such inspired, minimalist artwork.

There was a series of US paperbacks that I read as a kid in the 1970s ... a high school chum had a complete set of these. They were marked by small art in the bottom fifth of the cover, illustrating a single moment/scene from the book. I remember liking the FYEO cover, which featured Bond with a huge set of binoculars to his face ... all you could see was his mouth, and these huge lenses. It captured the reserved, detached quality that Bond had in the novels.
