Folio Society has released CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG

James Bond author Ian Fleming was hospitalized for living a way to hard of a life after High court trials regarding the book release of Thunderball. At the hospital he came up with an idea for a children's book for his son Casper. That book became three volumes and was called Chitty chitty bang bang

The first out of three volumes came out on October 22 1964. Sadly Ian Fleming never had a chance to live long enough to see them published since he died on August 12th 1964. 

When the book was released it also carried drawings by John Burningham.

56 years later Folio Society has released their own version of the book to complete the James Bond series they have produced book by book for some time now. 

The book looks fantastic and comes in a green slipcase and I am truly glad to have this in my collection. I do not own a Chitty Chitty bang bang first edition (except the Swedish one) since I find them hard to come by in good condition. 
The book also have some special features including behind the scenes material and sketches by John Burningham for the books written by Fergus Fleming. 

Therefore I find the Folio Society edition a very nice release for anyone in the same position. 

The Folio Society edition of Ian Fleming’s
 Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, including a new afterword by Fergus Fleming and original illustrations by John Burningham, is available exclusively from www.FolioSociety.com
