Bond By Design: The Art of the James Bond Films

If you love your Bond, we suspect Bond By Design: The Art of the James Bond Films might find its way onto your Christmas list.

It’s a book designed for those who want more than just a companion for a Sunday afternoon. This is very much aimed at the serious fan, with the 320-page book described as ‘a treasure trove of set, storyboard, vehicle, gadget and costume designs’, many of which haven’t been seen before.

The book accesses the EON Productions archive of more than 50 years of art and design, featuring the work of Bond film designers such as Ken Adam, Peter Lamont and Syd Cain and offering an insight into how famous sets were produced, such as Stromberg's Atlantis base in The Spy Who Loved Me and Drax's shuttle launch site in Moonraker. Of course, the cars gets a look in too, including technical drawings of Bond's gadget-laden Aston Martin DB5.

The book, which also include two exclusive, full-colour prints of Bond film designs, is available for pre-order now with a shelf date of 1st October 2015.

The price is £22.75.
