Wednesday Cover: Counter Paradise

I don't know who the artist is who painted the great movie poster-styled cover to this 1968 Nichol Fleming (Ian Fleming's nephew) spy novel, but I like it a lot. As for the book itself, well, it's been sitting on my shelf for several years now, and I still haven't gotten around to reading it. I will one of these days, though.

The guy looks vaguely like Anthony Perkins. Which brings up how awesome it would be if Bond also took on the personality of his own overbearing mother.
