This is Greg Williams' fourth "Bond on Set" book of set photography. I thought his books on DIE ANOTHER DAY, CASINO ROYALE and QUANTUM OF SOLACE were all very good.
Once more we have a collection of James Bond set images. This collection from SKYFALL is again an essential companion to the 2012 James Bond film, just as his "Bond on Set" books were. Looking back I still feel that "Bond on Set: 007 Filming Die Another Day" evoked visual memories of James Bond somewhere between Ian Fleming's literary vision and those created from the cinematic version. That book was rather thought provoking and delved somewhat deep into Fleming's literary world from a stylistic point of view.
"Bond on Set: Filming Skyfall" seems to evoke a more modern vision of Ian Fleming's feel and atmosphere for James Bond in an artistic format based on the globe trotting exploits in an era of computer based technology.
The photographs are more than plentiful and cover a broad range of locales and sets. The cinematic James Bond has come a long way since DIE ANOTHER DAY and so have we as is evidenced by the visuals found in this book. I get a strong sense of movement viewing this collection of photographs, which are splendid in their own unique way. Once again, this is one of several good books to come out on the Daniel Craig era of James Bond films.
