Bond Poster Project: 'From Russia With Love'

Has a Soviet propaganda poster kind of feel to it, this one, with its muted colours and slanted Muscovite typeface. The footsteps represent both the escape from Russia (pointing north-west back to Blighty) and blending in with the drab conformity of Communism. And of course they're interrupted by the Soviet red/blood red bootprint of the most famous footwear in Bond history: Rosa Klebb's deadly knife shoe.

Tomorrow: 'Thunderball'!
