Ian Fleming’s James Bond Royal Mail Stamps
In 1952 Ian Fleming sat at his desk and created a character that 55 years later has reached mythic status. That character was James Bond, hero of 12 novels by Fleming, as well as two volumes of short stories. This first special stamps issue of 2008 celebrates 007’s earliest incarnations within works of fiction. The set consists of six large landscape format stamps, each one dedicated to the covers of a particular Bond novel, including the very first – Casino Royale.
