The Spy Who Loved Me
Illustrated by Fay Dalton
The Spy Who Loved Me lets us get closer than ever to the elusive James Bond… This Folio collector’s edition of Ian Fleming’s controversial thriller features gorgeous illustrations by Fay Dalton.
The latest volume in Folio’s celebrated Bond collection features a unique twist: for the first and only time in the series, we witness the agent’s adventures through the eyes of another character. Observed by a woman who finds him both frightening and alluring, Bond is exposed in a way that the reader has never seen before – making The Spy Who Loved Me an essential read for anyone wishing to get under the skin of the famous secret agent. This edition features a smart binding inspired by the agent’s suits, and a series of exquisitely glamorous – and daring – illustrations by series artist Fay Dalton. For this edition we have also reintroduced Fleming’s original prologue, which had been removed from all modern editions of the text. In an unusual move by the author, this short introduction suggests that the manuscript had been left on his desk by Vivienne Michel, the character who narrates the book.
‘Ian Fleming keeps you riveted. His narrative pulls with the smooth power of Bond’s Thunderbird’
