007 beach towel FUSES the book and film Bond

Here's a curiosity that I've had for years. This James Bond beach towel, which dates to the 1980s, is an interesting fusion of the movie and literary James Bond. You'll note the image of Bond is clearly Roger Moore from For Your Eyes Only. Yet the "James Bond" typeface is from the Berkley paperbacks and John Gardner books. The sail boats and young lady in the background are, well, from the '80s.


  1. Nice! I love stuff that's clearly of a time and nice.

    Though it was probably for the best, I kind of lament the separation of BookBond and FilmBond from around 2004. This towel, and the Berkley paperbacks, are of when "James Bond" was more one brand.
