More about this item

A rendered facsimile dust jacket for the English (UK) Jonathan Cape first edition book of CASINO ROYALE, the first of the James Bond series books by Ian Fleming, which was published in 1953. The jacket was rendered by artist John Anthony Miller and archival ink and special paper were used. Jacket comes trimmed and enclosed in a Mylar jacket protector, ready to put on the book. There will be an attached signed label on the verso of the jacket signed and stating that this is a facsimile dust jacket. On the rear bottom of the jacket flap there is the artist's "JAM" monogram over "Facsimile Dust Jacket" very discreetingly done, tastefully- but to let those know that this is facsimile dust jacket. A quality rendition of the jacket. CASINO ROYALE by Ian Fleming Facsimile dust jacket for the first UK edition of this book published in 1953. The 2nd James Bond novel of the 14 original titles written by Ian Fleming. A scarce and expensive jacket amongst the Ian Fleming James Bond dust jackets. This is a professionally rendered facsimile dust jacket, not price-clipped, to fit the first UK edition of this book. The dust jacket is printed on archival paper, with pigment inks and enclosed in a crystal clear Mylar dust jacket protector, trimmed and pre-folded to fit your book. This jacket should also be able, or closely fit, the second, and third editions of the book by the same publisher, Jonathan Cape. You can email me if you have doubts about size. If you have a later printing of the book, and the measurements are similar or not similar, you can email me and I will make the attempt to have the jacket fit your book, which is usually always successful, to customize it for your later printing. This service is at no additional charge. These jackets are NEVER mass produced-and produced one at a time by myself-and are extremely labor intensive to get the colors to match as closely as possible to the original, trim and fit and inspect the final product for flaws in printing. They are done by myself, out of love, for books and classic artwork and to promote the book jackets as works of art The edge of the front flap of the dust jacket, as shown in the thumbnail photo, is marked "Facsimile Dust Jacket" and with my monogram "JAM" (indicates a quality product from the John Anthony Miller Graphic Studio), and to prevent this being sold as an original jacket. I have done this in a way as to not interfere with the aesthetics of the book jacket art. I am trying to preserve the beauty of the original art, yet not let this be passed off as an original dust jacket, so I am careful where I place my wording. To 'cut out' my monogram and words stating it is facsimile would ruin the jacket. Miller's jacket work is now being collected own its merit, as people are considering these older dust jackets as works of art, especially when associated older pre-1965 classic works such as this one is.

Thank you very much for you kind response to my facsimile dust jackets. These are made one by one by hand with great care. They will never be mass produced, and are made for reader and collector alike. I have received many positive comments about my work in making and printing these facsimile jackets. Here is one of them: "John's unique artistry was evident as soon as I saw The Great Gatsby dust jacket. Having seen scores of facsimile jackets, John's work is in a completely different league. The rich tonal quality of the colors is breathtaking and the weight of the paper is carefully considered. He satisfied the needs of the most demanding client, even during a personally trying time. I look forward to doing continued business with him in the future and give him my highest recommendation." Ryan Dohm, Profiles in History I am primarily an artist and take great care in the quality of my work. A number of you are buying my signed facsimile dust jackets and framing them. If you wish me to send a jacket to you unfolded, please let me know. Thank you, John Anthony Miller. Add a map to your own listings. FREE Trial!
