Bentley and Vintage Team up for $1200 James Bond Book
Bentley Motors and Vintage Classics are partnering for a 500-copy limited run of James Bond debut “Casino Royale,” pricing the leather-cased copies at £750 (about $1200) apiece. The Bentley link is in reference to James Bond’s affinity for the performance cars, and Random House furnishes the limited edition accordingly. Its hand-bound beluga leather case comes from the same tannery as Bentley’s interiors, the metal spine is reminiscent of Bentleys tread plates, and a secret compartment hides a set of playing cards. The Bentley edition of “Casino Royale” is to go on sale from November 1, with orders being taken via telephone numbers available from Fleming’s official website .
