For Your Eyes Only book cover art

Coming on the heels of our last post about the film, at least we have a title now: Quantum of Solace. Now I know you’re probably thinking the same thing I am: “Wasn’t that the name of the last Enigma album?”

But no, it actually was a short story by Ian Fleming that appeared in the For Your Eyes Only collection. And if you check out the plot on Wikipedia, it’s probably safe to say that a lot of the story is going to be shunted. Which begs the question…why use the title?

I had to look it up to see if it was a prank, even though it was listed in Variety. Maybe this is a Blue Harvest to get people to quit asking about the title? I don’t know. It just…is an interesting choice. Let’s leave it at that.

Update: Logo revealed…see it below.

Perhaps they chose Quantum of Solace because it lets them do the two-Os-in-a-row-for-007 routine? Possibly.
