Six Entertainment Weekly James Bond Covers

Six Entertainment Weekly James Bond Covers

Here's a bonus set of covers for our year-long celebration of the 20th anniversary of Entertainment Weekly. For the August 18, 2006 issue of the magazine, there were six consecutive cover pages. It was part of a big ad buy that extended through a number of magazines during that time (Esquire and Fortune also produced six-cover issues). The team at Entertainment Weekly decided to produce six James Bond movie covers, tied to the actual cover which featured Daniel Craig as the newest Bond. Design director Geraldine Hessler created five vintage covers of EW, each featuring a different James Bond, and each designed to look like it was published in the era of its respective cover subject.

(Inset cover): George Lazenby as James Bond, from the December 18, 1969 issue of Entertainment Weekly.
