→ This extraordinary collection of Soviet and Palestine posters was acquired by our seller during his trips to the USSR and Lebanon in the 1960s and 1970s. 

In March 1969, the seller joined a UK delegation of the National Union of Students on a visit to the USSR. During his stay in Moscow, Leningrad and Tallinn, he acquired some of the posters. Later that year, he wrote to the Soviet authorities who sent several parcels of posters to him at university. 

The Palestinian posters were obtained in Summer 1971 when the seller travelled to the Middle East to apply for a postgraduate course at the American University in Beirut. On arrival he realised the university was not fully functioning due to the unstable and rapidly deteriorating political and military situation. He stayed in Beirut for two months then visited Syria, Jordan and Israel, returning home via Beirut. At the time, he considered becoming a journalist so arranged an interview with Bassam Abu Sharif, the spokesperson for the PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine). During this meeting he was given many of the posters that form this collection. The new symbol of the PFLP was adopted in May 1969 and these posters are among the earliest published by the Palestinian resistance.

James Bond is 007 – shaken, not stirred…!

PC0198_1_m  As fans of Ian Fleming’s fictional MI6 secret agent, James Bond, and his collection of classic cars and gadget-laden vehicles can rejoice at the extended opening of the Bond in Motion exhibition at the London Film Museum (and the widely anticipated opening of the next James Bond movie Spectre starring Daniel Craig), we take a look at some of the iconic movie posters produced for the 007 movies currently listed on our website.

PC0247_1_m  This long-running popular series full of seductive Bond girls, evil villains, high speed car chases, witty one-liners, exotic locations and Martinis “shaken, not stirred” hit the screens in 1962 with the first actor to play the dapper British spy master, Sean Connery (1962-1971, 1983: Dr No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, Diamonds Are Forever and a later adaptation of Thunderball, Never Say Never Again):

In 1969, between You Only Live Twice and Diamonds Are Forever, the Australian actor, George Lazenby, was chosen to play the role of James Bond in one movie only – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service:

In 1973 the English actor, Roger Moore, then well known for his role as Simon Templar in The Saint, took over and became the oldest and longest serving 007 actor, portraying a more suave James Bond (1973-1985: Live and Let Die, The Man with the Golden Gun, The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, OctopussyA View to a Kill):
