Finally the day has come when Folio Society decided to release Ian Fleming´s ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE in their series of James Bond books. 

We are a lot of fans of James Bond who favours On her majesty's secret service both as a book and a movie. that's the reason I say "finally". The wait has been long and many people just like I has thought that the next book will be it. 

But now it is finally here and many of the drawings looks better than anticipated. Fay Dalton never seems to be able to disappoint. 

There are eight drawings within the book. Seven of the drawings are scenes from the books that can also be found in the film with the same title. On the eight picture Dalton has been brave and drawn Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Feels a bit like drawing the Muslim God Muhammad. No one have dared to do so yet. 

It is of course hard for Dalton to come up with new ideas for drawings that has not been used before. The skichase cover was for instance used on the british book club edition and also on the 1979 Bulls-eye edition. The skichase has also been used once on the scandinavian comic version with Sean Connery's resemblance. 

But this is truly a great looking book just like the rest of the series. Do I dare to say that Countess Tracy di Vincenzo has never looked better.

The Folio Society edition of Ian Fleming’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, illustrated by Fay Dalton, is available exclusively from www.FolioSociety.com
