007 Stamps - First Edition Covers
29th October 2007 / 30th March 2008 / 19th July 2008

Royal Mail is marking the centenary of the birth of Bond creator Ian Fleming with six stamps issued on 8 January and featuring different editions of six of his most famous novels. Buckingham Covers have released special limited edition first day covers featuring the stamps - and autographs by famous James Bond cast members!

This action packed, underwater adventure cover is officially licensed by Fleming Publications. It is postmarked at St Margaret's-at-Cliff, Kent, where James Bond's creator, Ian Fleming lived. As well as the standard edition, a limited number of these first day covers have been signed by Richard Kiel (Jaws, "The Spy Who Loved Me", "Moonraker"), Patrick Macnee (Sir Godfrey Tibbett, "A View To A Kill") and James Bond himself, Sir Roger Moore.

Diamonds are forever... and so is this classic James Bond cover. The design, stylish simple to compliment the colourful stamps, shows luscious diamonds cascading before the faintest hint of a gun barrel. The cover is postmarked at Mayfair, when James Bond's creator, Ian Fleming, was born - and you dice on the postmark. A limited number of covers signed by one-time James Bond actor George Lazenby are available. The following Bond girls will also personally sign a limited number:

  • Madeline Smith (Miss Caruthers, "Live And Let Die")
  • Caroline Munro (Naomi, "The Spy Who Loved Me")
  • Eunice Gayson (Sylvia Trench, "Dr No", "From Russia With Love")
  • Zena Marshall (Miss Taro, "Dr No")
  • Britt Ekland (Mary Goodnight, "The Man With The Golden Gun")
  • Shirley Eaton (Jill Masterson, "Goldfinger"
  • Samantha Bond (Moneypenny)

The prestige booklet (pictured above) is available as a set of four covers unsigned, or signed by four different Bond Girls. Stocks are strictly limited, so place your orders fast!
