Bentley designs James Bond book ‘Carte Blanche’ for $1,650May 2nd, 2011 - 11:16 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
New York City, May 2 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A special version of Jeffery Deaver’s James Bond book “Carte Blanche” is being offered for $1,650 each. The edition is designed by Bentley.
Bentley’s connection with the James Bond brand is strong. In the original James Bond novels which were written by Fleming, Bond was always driving a Bentley. In the new book, that didn’t seem to have changed that much because the 007 character is still driving a Bentley. The only difference is that Bond drove the Continental GT version of the car.
The new Bentley Bond novel has more than just words in the pages. Every page has a mark of 9mm bullet hole. The book’s cover is made of a Nappa leather with the title of the book embossed on it. The print is done on an ivory paper with red and black ink used for the words inside the book.
James Bond is the most successful spy franchise in the history of entertainment. There have been several James Bond movies and novels. Arguably the most famous James bond movie is Goldfinger. The character has been played by several people over the years.
Bentley’s “Carte Blanche” has gone on sale already.
