New release: Bond By Design. Welcome to the season of 007! With a new film coming next month, a new comic series from Dynamite, and great Bond-related books out by Ajay Chowdhury, Anthony Horowitz and Fergus Fleming, a new must-see edition was just released yesterday by DK Publishing. Bond By Design is a deluxe (and massive!) celebration of the history of production art and story boards from the James Bond movie franchise, and features pieces from Dr. No to this year's SPECTRE (one SPECTRE image as far as I can tell so far). Created in the same large slipcase fashion as their Bond: 50 Years of Movie Posters book, Bond By Design makes a great companion piece and is an essential addition to your Spy Vibe library. From the press release: "Bond By Design: The Art of the James Bond Films gives an exclusive tour through EON Productions' James Bond archives - a treasure trove of set, storyboard, vehicle, gadget and costume designs, many of which have never been published before. Accessing EON Productions' vast archive of more than 50 years of art and design, featuring the work of legendary Bond film designers such as Ken Adam, Peter Lamont and Syd Cain, the book provides a unique, spectacular and fascinating insight into the longest-running film franchise of all time. Revealing the craft behind the creation of famous sets, such as Stromberg's Atlantis base in The Spy Who Loved Me and Drax's shuttle launch site in Moonraker, as well as technical drawings of Bond's gadget-laden Aston Martin DB5, the book includes two exclusive, full-colour prints of Bond film designs. Bond By Design: The Art of the James Bond Films also brings the James Bond story right up to date with behind-the-scenes artwork from the newest film, SPECTRE." Order from Amazon and AmazonUK. Enjoy!
