Ultra-Cool New Illustrations For the Original James Bond Novels

We’ve used this space before (more than once) to sing the praises of The Folio Society, the gift-from-God publishing house that puts out gorgeous new editions of classic books with snazzy new illustrations. In edition to their remarkable one-offs like The Exorcist and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, they’ve embarked on a ongoing, jaw-dropping project: new editions of all of Ian Fleming’s original James Bond novels. They’ve done four so far – Casino Royale, Dr. No, From Russia With Love, and Moonraker – and were kind enough to share some of the fab new art by London-based illustrator Fay Dalton.
