A James Bond Book Coming from Top BrandsOctober 10, 2013
Bentley and Vintage Classics plan to create one of the most prolific and expensive James Bond books of all time. The book will be limited to 500 copies of “Casino Royale.” Each book will come in a leather case and will cost around $1,200 each.
Bentley chose this project because of the performance cars used in the movies and referenced in the story. This provides the right type of connection with Bentley Motors with both the luxury feel and the fast cars. James Bond chose Bentley as his car in the original novels by Ian Fleming, as well.
The leather case is a beluga hand-bound choice with leather form the same tannery as the interiors of Bentley vehicles. The metal spine looks much like the tread plates Bentley uses and there’s a secret compartment perfect for a deck of playing cards.
This collector’s edition provides silver foil page edges with red, white and black coloring throughout the book. The coloring makes perfect sense with the theme of the book and the game of baccarat. Illustrations are also found throughout the novel and provided by Damian Gascoigne.
With only 500 copies produced, this will quickly become one of the rarest copies of Casino Royale in the world. It will go on sale November 1st, which is perfect timing for the holiday season. Whether you’re looking for a copy for yourself or as a gift for that special James Bond fan in your life, you will only be able to find this limited edition book from Random House.
The release of this book is in celebration of 60 years of Bond and the book will feature a new introduction from Sir Stirling Moss, the legendary racer. Hand stitched embroidery and the finest materials make this one of the absolute best James Bond items every created. Find out more information here.
