A stamp for each Bond, and more. Some nice things here - I like a first day cover:

and I'm pretty sure this belongs on my wall (it's 70 quid though):

    The Brosnan one looks particularly good. And if you don’t end up buying that @Agent_99 I’d be amazed ... early Xmas present? ... late Xmas present? ... heck, you don’t need an excuse!

    Does anyone have the source images of those photos? I've always wondered about that shot of Connery as they used it on the DVDs etc.

    @mtm, this is the source image they used for Connery. For the Special edition artwork, they mirrored and colorized the image. They also adjusted his eye positioning. It looks like they also put him on a new body. Which was the case for many of the Connery special edition artworks.

    I ordered way too much stuff from there. And the sad part? I can't even use them! :D

    That’s really interesting! Thanks; there are too many similarities (although a few differences which likely are faked) for that not to be true. From the original shot I wonder if that’s not from Dr No..?

    I've tried overlaying the two and I don't think that's the exact image they used as his head is slightly at the wrong angle. I'm guessing there was another shot taken a second away from this one where he'd turned his head a bit! :)
