Eastwing illustrator Damian Gascoigne was asked to collaborate on a very exclusive new book project.
Vintage Classics and Bentley Motors have united to create a luxury special edition of CASINO ROYALE to mark 60 years of Bond, featuring a brand new introduction from racing legend Sir Stirling Moss.
Just 500 copies will be produced, each costing £750. This collector’s item will be on sale from 1st November exclusively from Random House.
From the hand-bound beluga leather casing to distinctive Bentley features such as hand-stitched embroidery and silver foil page edges, this special edition of Casino Royale is produced with only the very finest materials. Its striking red, white and black colouring is a nod to the gambling theme of Fleming’s first novel, where Bond famously takes on his adversary, Le Chiffre, over a game of baccarat. A special feature of this edition is the bespoke set of playing cards, hidden within a secret compartment. Throughout each book are evocative brush illustrations by the Award winning illustrator Damian Gascoigne.
