The James Bond Archives

James Bond Taschen

James Bond Taschen book

I own two other oversized volumes from the Taschen film archives series, Ingmar Bergman and Stanley Kubrick, both true movie treasures (and enormously heavy), the kind of work that is clearly done out of passion for film-making (and the kind of coffee table book you actually have something to read in), and I have no doubt that the new James Bond tome, set to be re-released (it’s the second edition) about the same time as Spectre, will meet my expectations (especially that it was written by Paul Duncan, who was granted access to all the production archives). I don’t know about you, but I am a declared James Bond fan. There have been a few exceptions, but I do enjoy the movies. Of course I love the Sean Connery classics (although my favourite remains On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) and I am somewhat partial to Timothy Dalton as Agent 007, but I don’t think there could be any better modern James Bond than Daniel Craig. I am looking forward to the storyboards, interviews, beautiful printed photography, to all the detailed, well documented information covering every film from the series made, that only a book can provide.
