    The picture/film cell was £5 so not too bad a price plus it's for charity

    Bet there's always some nice finds at charity shops! Only have a couple thrift stores around these parts, but haven't found anything of interest there, really. There's always Ebay etc., though!

    True I have found a few bargains on ebay, though I have banned myself well for a few weeks anyway... I spend too much online lol

    Way to easy to get carried away with online shopping! Usually try to keep it to a minimum, going for bargains when possible.

    A general question about posters; where is the best place to search for film posters online? Bought a couple posters from a dealer at Amazon some years ago, but wasn't all that impressed with the quality of the reproductions.

    This weekend I had a lovely present from a friend (who was going to put them in the recycling but luckily thought of me first):

    Found both in a local charity shop that gets Bond books in from time to time. Saw both, knew I didn't have either, so I had to buy them. Photos aren't mine, but the covers are identical. With the exception of the original Richard Chopping covers of the Jonathan Cape 1st Editions, I don't think you can get better than those old Pan covers.

    I used to have that very edition of DR NO. Love his green face.

    They don't make 'em like they used to. The modern covers are mostly dull by comparison. Though there was a really nice edition of the Fleming books in hard back, a few years ago. I missed the opportunity to pick them up at the time, it doesn't surprise me that the price on them has gone up.

    I love making finds like that. I used to find Bond books all the time in such shops but don't a lot anymore, although I did pick up an FYEO from when the movie was released that had a more modern-looking Bond on the cover.

    Absolutely magnificent.

    So I had a job interview a couple of weeks ago and...I didn't get the job. This was a blow, as I'd have really enjoyed it and been good at it (IMHO).

    However, it was at Vintage, who publish Fleming, and at the end of the interview they thanked me for coming and asked if I wanted any books to take home. Obviously I asked for Bond, and they gave me this, grabbing it right off a display stand for me, before its official publication date:

    This is the best thing I've ever got out of an interview that wasn't a job (though I still wish I'd got the job), and an item I'll enjoy having in my collection because it's got a story behind it!

    Sorry to hear about the interview, @Agent_99. What job position was it?
    «You're out of luck, Dr. No»? Do they use a quote on the cover? Looks really nice. Love the typography!

    Please, @Agent_99 Could you show us the front (or the back!)? ;) (Sorry about the job)

    Here's front (white) and back (black) covers.

    And thanks for the good wishes! It was a role rewriting book descriptions and adding keywords to make their back catalogue more discoverable on Amazon. Would have been right up my geeky street; I hope something similar (or better) comes along soon!

    Thanks! They are really changing the style, aren't they?

    This one is from a series called 'Vintage Heroes and Villains', which also includes Dracula, Brighton Rock and The Thirty-Nine Steps amongst others, so they might still bring out Dr No in the style of the covers above as well. I hope so because the designs are really beautiful!

    I love the LALD one.

    That sound like a job for every fan of books! Hope something as good comes your way! :)
    Do you know when these books like the one you got will be released?

    Well? At present the extension is roughly 5 or 6 weeks from completion! So it is a little bit like the Jumanji drums the kids hear in the attic! Lol! The collection is getting anxious to burst out into the world again! Really looking forward to sharing it with you guys and gals on here!

    It's quite a collection, so here is an Imgur link.
    I began the collection when I was about 8 years old, in 2007. Now I'm 19, just bought my first suit and wearing 007 ties :) Really happy with it.

    Great collection. Love the Bond passports and the 'El Toro' ID badge!
