There has never been a shortage of books dealing with the Cinematic career of James Bond 007. And with 2012 being the 50th Anniversary of the release of the very first James Bond film, DR. NO, there have been several new books celebrating this momentous occasion.
So what makes THIS book so special?
ALL ABOUT BOND is a gorgeous coffee table book fully loaded with many behind-the scenes photos from several of the earlier Bond films. We get to see Terry O'Neill's incredible and extremely rare photos of Sean Connery clowning around on the sets of both GOLDFINGER and DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER. George Lazenby and Jill St. John relaxing together by poolside. Roger Moore from LIVE AND LET DIE. And David Niven, Peter Sellers and Ursula Andress from the original Bond 1967 spoof, CASINO ROYALE.
Being the huge Bond Fan/Collector that I am, I was amazed at the large number of photos in this book which I had never seen before in any format.
Along with the beautiful photos, there are also contributions from a number of former Bond people (including Honor Blackman, Joanna Lumley, Shirley Eaton, Britt Ekland, Maryam d'Abo & Sir Ken Adam) who talk about their indiviual experiences in the world of 007.
This is a Fascinating book which no long-time Bond fan/collector should be without.
