James Bond has proved to be one of the most popular franchises. Anything connected with the fictional secret agent is grand and particularly so when a new book in the series is ready for release. The top American thriller writer Jeffery Deaver has written the new James Bond book called the Carte Blanche and the publishers Hodder & Stoughton want to make the release one of the grandest events in the publishing history. The publishers have teamed up with Bentley Motors to create an exclusive Bentley special edition. It is one of the most anticipated adventures of James Bond and will be released in the ultimate luxurious edition.
The Bentley special edition will be a limited edition release and 500 copies are available for pre order. The movies that have been made on James Bond show him more often driving Aston Martins and BMWs but the books on James Bond always show Bentley as his preferred car. In the new book Carte Blanche also we will see James Bond driving the sophisticated new Bentley Continental GT. It is a beautifully sculpted car and the Bentley design team worked closely with the publishers to capture the spirit of Bond and Bentley. The final design came from Bentley Senior Designer Brett Boydell.
The Bentley special edition of the new book comes in a stunning metal case made especially by an automotive supplier. The book is custom made in white Nappa leather, the same grade of leather we find inside the Bentley GT. The text is printed in two colors – black and red – on ivory paper, with endpapers of matching red leather. Every book in the limited edition contains a polished 9mm bullet concealed in the pages and marked by an individual number. May 26 is the scheduled date for the release of the special edition of Carte Blanche. The luxurious limited edition is priced at a cool £1,000 which is about $1,650.
