Celebration Royale Sweden in Nybro town                                   http://www.007museum.com/

The month of April, 2013, witnessed various celebrations of the 60 th Anniversary of the publication of Ian Fleming’s very first James Bond novel Casino Royale, which first saw the light in 1953. As part of this, the UK’s Sunday newspaper The Observer (April 14) published a nice set of pictures of some of the best dust-jackets and cover design images from the various UK and US editions of the novel over the years, including the first Jonathan Cape edition (1953), with the famous ‘nine of hearts’ artwork devised by Fleming himself, the first American edition in 1954 (from the Macmillan Company which, curiously, changed the design to nine diamonds), the Signet Books 29 th printing (which was a tie-in to the rogue Charles K. Feldman 1967 ‘comedy’ movie version created by five directors), and the Jonathan Cape 4 th printing from 1957. All the covers were supplied by Michael VanBlaricum, who has been collecting ‘Bondiana’ (as he puts it) since 1979, and is president of the Ian Fleming Foundation, which is based in the USA. Mike also contributed a commentary to the Guardian website (the sister paper of the Observer), which gave some interesting notes on eleven of the Casino covers.

William Boyd takes James Bond back to 1960s in new 007 novel

Booker-nominated author William Boyd is taking on the mission to write a new James Bond novel.

The as-yet-untitled book will appear in 2013, the 60th anniversary of the super-spy’s first literary outing, in Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale.

Boyd has revealed that his story will mark a return to ”classic Bond” and will be set in the late 1960s.

He is the third author in recent years to be invited by the Ian Fleming estate to write an official Bond novel.

Before him came American thriller writer Jeffery Deaver, who penned Carte Blanche in 2011; and Sebastian Faulks, whose Devil May Care was published to mark Ian Fleming’s centenary in 2008.

Deaver’s book, released in May last year, is set in the present day and portrayed Bond as a Royal Naval Reserve veteran whose service included a tour of Afghanistan. It has sold over 160,000 copies to date and is out in paperback next month.

Sales of Carte Blanche in its opening week were about a third of those achieved by Faulks’ book in the same period.

Other writers to take on Fleming’s hero include John Gardner and Charlie Higson, author of the Young Bond books.

Agent 007 on new adventures in new book
James Bond is back to the 60s in a new novel about 007, says the BBC. The author William Boyd has approached to write the new Bond book, scheduled to be released in 2013.

The novel has as yet no title, but Boyd has revealed that the story will be a ”classic Bond” set during the late 60s. Boyd, who is the third author in recent years to get the offer to write a Bond novel, did not hesitate to say yes. Jeffery Deaver wrote, ”Carte Blanche” which was published in 2011 and Sebastian Faulks wrote ”The devil’s service” which was issued in 2008.
William Boyd made his debut in 1981 with his novel ”A good man in Africa”. It and several of his other novels have been filmed with Bond stars in the roles. Sean Connery played in ”A good man in Africa” in 1994, Pierce Brosnan in ”Mister Johnson” in 1991 and Daniel Craig in ”Shooting Grave” in 1999.
