Secret agent James Bond returns in the tenth book in the endlessly popular Folio Bond series. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is Fleming at the height of his powers, every page dripping with action, romance and tragedy, and his complex and enduringly compelling hero sits at the heart of it all.
This is also the second book in the ‘Blofeld trilogy’, bringing Bond and his enemy face to face for the first time – with explosive results.
Artist Fay Dalton continues her brilliant work on the series, bringing us a vision of Bond that captures all the glamour and the grit of Fleming’s world.
For this edition she has produced seven thrilling colour illustrations, as well as a fantastic image for the illustrated slipcase. The elegantly understated binding design nods to both the location of Bond’s latest adventure and the agent’s love of smart suits.
Fay Dalton is a London-based illustrator. She has a first class degree in Illustration and was the winner of the 2010 Pickled Ink Award for illustration. Fay combines traditional drawing and painting methods with digital painting.
