Bond Stamps Issued To Commemorate Fleming Centenary

A set of JAMES BOND postage stamps commemorating the 100th anniversary of 007 author IAN FLEMING's birth have been issued in the U.K. The six extra-long stamps feature a selection of original cover artwork from Bond novels including Dr. No, Casino Royale, Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever and From Russia With Love. Actress Samantha Bond, who played Miss Moneypenny in the Pierce Brosnan Bond movies, launched the British Royal Mail stamps posing alongside an Aston Martin DB6, the secret agent's car of choice in the films Goldfinger, Thunderball and Goldeneye. She says, "Being involved with the Bond legend is always an adventure, and these new stamps are a wonderful start to this centenary year. "James has always held a special place in my heart, and now he will set millions of other hearts fluttering around the world."
