Quantum of Solace: The Complete James Bond Short Stories is a stunning book designed by Angus Hyland and Fabian Herrmann of Pentagram that is a collection of Ian Fleming’s Bond short stories. Gorgeous.
Hyland created a cloth-covered hardback with cover imagery restricted to a silver foil-blocked image of Bond’s infamous Walther PPK (shown here with silencer). A subtle diamond pattern is debossed on to the boards, which combined with deep burgundy endpapers evokes the discerning elegance of Bond’s world. An embossed manila bellyband with typewritten cover information on the label evokes the official documents of the period.
