Back in 2008, when Ian Fleming would have turned 100 years old, publishers Penguin books released their centenary edition of all of his Bond novels.
They turned to artist Michael Gillette to come up with a classic cover design which would unify the whole series. His paintings featured the female leads of each book, with the titles drawn across the body.
These books were only produced in a printing of 4000 copies as a first edition and a second edition. This makes a complete set very hard to find and especially if you must have all as first editions.
Back in 2008 the books cost £14.99 but nowadays cost as much as £80 each on Ebay.
|I am so curious to why OHMSS got |
a different cover in Germany?
So I started collecting some of them, in no rush, as I understood the need for patience to acquire a full set.
But then I found Michael's web page, and to my happiness he is actually selling officially licensed reprints in full colors that are even more attractive to look at then the book collection.
So, I decided that I need the boxed set in my collection. They look so great and since the cover design is such a big part of my collecting side these will be enjoyed for many years to come for me.
Here is the link to Michael's own web page where you can order your own collection, or maybe just your favorite book cover in the series.
I will have to come back to you, the readers, once the boxed set has arrived.
