FOR YOUR SHELF ONLY: COLLECTING 007

We have been talking with Spy Vibers about their experiences growing up reading and collecting spy thrillers and other memorabilia. Most of us started in the old days before the Internet, trolling used book shops and flea markets. But where to find the treasures these days? You might not know that the premiere James Bond publication, 007 Magazine, also has an on-line shop with a lot of rare and autographed items. You can find everything from First Edition Bond novels to signatures by the likes of Desmond "Q" Llewelyn and Dame Diana Rigg. They also offer posters of rare movie stills and portraits. Check out the Sales Area on the 007 Magazine website for details. While you are visiting their lair, check out the amazing back issues for sale and on-line subscriptions. They even have an issue that spotlights designer Raymond Hawkey, who has been coming up often in our For Your Shelf Only series.




Spy Vibers with deep pockets will also want to check out the current entertainment auction at Bonhams. A quick search for "James Bond" yielded movie props, posters, and this lovely Golden Gun replica signed by Roger Moore. Auction ends July 3rd.



Scroll down for new editions of our series, For Your Shelf Only, where guests share stories about collecting and show us some of their treasures. More about Spy Vibe creator Agent J at Jason Whiton.
