60 YEARS OF CASINO ROYALE

It was 60 years ago today on April 13, 1953, that British publisher Jonathan Cape released Ian Fleming’s first novel, Casino Royale. The book introduced the world to secret agent James Bond 007, and has never gone out of print. Below are some Casino covers from the last 60 years. Happy birthday, Mr. Bond!

      Is that the one second row, second from the left? Never seen that one before. It is nice. Quite like the style, an interesting depiction of Bond himself, and the obscured view of the thug with the cane is a neat little touch.

  2. Wonderful set of overs for 60 years of a wonderful book. Take a look on Italian style
