MAN ON A MISSION! 

007 MAGAZINE subscriber Duncan Carter is a man on a mission, a mission to have all the actors and actresses featured in Graham Rye’s The James Bond Girls book autograph his volume. Duncan estimates that the book has already travelled over 22,500 miles with him in his quest for a complete set of Bond Girl autographs. The best remembered of all the places Duncan has visited as a result of his interest in James Bond? A stay at Ian Fleming’s house ‘Goldeneye’ in Jamaica, not surprisingly, was the most wonderful experience he has ever had. Duncan remembers: “Despite being very very expensive – starting at $2,600 per night – just to be in the house and sit at Ian Fleming’s desk was priceless!” The older he becomes the more Duncan is interested in all facets of Bond: “I have now taken to choosing my vacations around Bond locations. In addition to ‘Goldeneye’ we’ve also visited James Bond Island (Phuket) in Thailand.” With the original Bond Girl, Ursula Andress making a rare appearance at ‘Autographica’ in October 2005, Duncan is sure to be first in the queue!

Although now out of print, the 1999 edition of The James Bond Girls book by Graham Rye remains one of the two most signed James Bond-related publications at autograph and movie collector fairs around the world.

RIGHT: Duncan soaks up the atmosphere at Ian Fleming’s writing desk at ‘Goldeneye’ in Jamaica.
