IFP unveils 70th-anniversary logo

Ian Fleming Publications today introduced its 70th-anniversary logo for the literary James Bond.

The Bond character debuted with the novel Casino Royale, published in 1953. The book would be adapted in the fall of 1954 on CBS, with Barry Nelson as an American version of Bond.

The rights to Casino Royale weren’t available to Eon Productions when it started its Bond film series in 1962. The novel would be parodied in producer Charles K. Feldman’s 1967 spoof. Eon finally obtained the rights and its version was released in 2006, the first Eon production to star Daniel Craig.

This year, IFP has said it will publish new editions of Ian Fleming’s original Bond stories.

Here is IFP’s tweet with the 70th-anniversary logo.
