James Bond: The Man and His World, the Official Companion to Ian Fleming's Creation by Henry Chancellor is published in hardcover. The book is available from Amazon.

For over half a century, the Bond novels have entertained millions around the world. 007 has been a cultural phenomenon since the first publication of Casino Royale in 1953. But no book has celebrated Fleming's literary Bond in his own right.

This is an authoritative and entertaining journey through the world of the original James Bond, from Moscow to Mayfair, the bedroom to the war-room, the casino to the villain's lair. Ian Fleming's archive has released never-before seen documents and material to create this book.

Sources include research notes and diaries to annotated manuscripts and ephemera from Fleming's files. Illustrated with classy, contemporary images, the book is a visual feast, but it is also engaging, with a rigorous and satisfying text. It recaptures the glamour of an age, and offers a new insight into the twentieth century's most thrilling literary hero.
