I hope they listen to you. Another big Moonraker fan here, and just imagine the artwork possibilities!
PussyNoMore thanks Agent_99;741713 for his support.
'Moon raker' would give rise to phenomenal artwork opportunities. Drax, Blades, the rocket - the possibilities are endless.
Let's hope they listen to a combination of common sense and good taste!
"The next Bond edition may arrive sometime around Christmas :)"
Oh, could it be OHMSS I wonder?!
Nice interview. I was wondering whether they'd revisit LALD. I have that edition and it really sticks out amongst the other three. With FRWL and DN done (two of my favourites I'd want folio to do anyway!) Moonraker or OHMSS would be the next two.
Good call - definitely on YOLT! That could be the jewel in the crown if they get it right. They are wonderful editions to have. Along with the James Bond Archives book - Folio books really do stand out from the pack.
I'm on the Moonraker train, and hope that one is next. Folio mentioned going back to the proper order of the books and, skipping Live & Let Die, that would put it next. I'd love to see Fay's replication of the rocket, the cliff collapse, Drax and his crazy Germans, the car chase and of course Blades. Many great opportunities for amazing art.
@Torgeirtrap, exactly my thoughts. I'd happily litter a study with big prints of Fay's illustrations, but shelling out money for books I'd be scared to bend the binding of or smudge is a no-go. ;)
The worst feeling of reading a book, is when you in a careless moment put to much pressure on the book, and the spine gives. Can't do that with books like these!
Books are made to be read, PussyNoMore views the untouched library with suspicion.
It's the sought of thing Goldfinger would have done. Buy things just to look at them.
PussyNoMore reads his collection on a regular basis and once sat down with his cherished Bentley addition of CR only to discover that four hours latter he'd read the whole damn thing again. What a trip that was!
You're my kind of guy, @PussyNoMore. Imagine if Bond had the same notions about beautiful women as people do about collectible and untouchable books?
There are definitely books in my collection that are well-read, but these Folio Society books are just too gorgeous. Can't have these kind of books – I don't know, lying in a pile on the floor or something. Kind of like the books in Bond's apartment in SP! This is unfortunately the case of half my book collection these days...
This is great news - PussyNoMore is ordering it as we speak. Fay Dalton’s visuals look stunning.
Going forward, Live & Let Die should be next purely because if Dalton stops, for any reason, and Folio are obliged to find another artist, it would be nice for Fay to be associated with the editions up to .......
Hopefully this won’t happen and she’ll complete the catalogue but you never know and Folio have already alluded to her availability/capacity determining their release schedule.
I hope so too. For a start I wouldn't mind if she does all the Covers for the comic adaptions of Flemings novels at Dynamite.
For anyone who is unaware she did the cover for the first Adaption of Casino Royale which will be released in the next couple weeks.
For some reason I thought Fay was a dude. :)
That was my mistake, too, at first. :)) I thought Faye would've been the female rendition of the name, so I assumed Fay was a man until somebody corrected me a while ago.
Oh sweet Jesus - just what I wanted. Have CR and FRWL and both are awesome. This though really is the dog's danglers. One of my fav. Fleming books and look at that great artwork. Oh boy…
If you are a collector, you just need them because they are going to be the next desirable.
If you haven't started your collection because you are either too young, a little strapped for cash or have been simply asleep at the switch - the folio editions are a fabulous place to start. Extremely high quality, beautifully illustrated and quite reasonably priced.
PussyNoMore gives them his cherished 5 star seal of approval.
