(The Fleming Collection now have it in storage, and may re-hang it in the future.)

Editor's note:
FSWL has bought a printed copy of the original Ian Fleming painting and we absolutely love it, and now without doubt one of the front pieces in our collection. As much as we love the James Bond actors, their lives wouldn't have been the same without Fleming.

In 2009, Paul Kenny's excellent book The Man Who Supercharged Bond, the extraordinary story of Charles Amherst Villiers, was published by J H Haynes & Co Ltd.
