James Bond Gets His Own Stamps

Posted on January 9, 2008

Britain's Royal Mail has just issued a set of stamps commemorating Ian Fleming's greatest fictional character, James Bond. It has been 100 years since Fleming was born. The six stamps feature original cover artwork of the James Bond books, including Dr. No, Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever and From Russia With Love. They come in a variety of denominations for both domestic and overseas use. Sean Connery was on hand for the launch of the commemorative stamps.
