1960s James Bond Pan Book Covers

Came across some vintage James Bond book covers by Pan Books done by Raymond Hawkey that look relatively simple but hold an appealing style with the use of slabbing thick weighted sans serif contrasted with a thinner weight against some nice illustration.  Better than some of the book covers I see these days, that's for sure.

The only cover actually attributed to Raymond Hawkey is 'Live And Let Die' PAN then copied the style for all the other titles and so didn't have to pay him!

Sorry, that should have been 'Thunderball and not LALD!
