BOND BOUND

Ian Fleming Publications published a fantastic catalog called Bond Bound a while back that featured pages and pages of historical James Bond book cover designs and essays. I recall trying to get a copy through Bohnams, but the book was sold out and quickly became a high-ticket item for collectors on eBay. The title showed up briefly on the Ian Fleming Publications site again and I finally had my chance to order a copy. It's a beautifully produced edition and, as I imagined, a wonderful collection of images to study. It's especially interesting to see how Bond has been marketed through graphics that have targeted different trends over the years in design. Our sister site, Illustrated 007, has posted some images with information. Keep checking the Fleming site for availability.
