    Large print editions can be highly collectible as they are typically published in small quantities with most going to libraries. Pre-ordering is a must. Not only are large print editions only available for an eye-blink, but they frequently use alternate dust jacket cover art making them even more desirable to collectors.

    The most recent publication of a James Bond novel in the large print format was Ulverscroft’s The World Is Not Enough by Raymond Benson (see CBn’s coverage here). The last large print Bond novel published by Thorndike was Benson’s Die Another Day.

    For all the latest on the Young Bond franchise – including the next novel in the series, Blood Fever – keep watching CBn.
