In 1962, Sean Connery first uttered the immortal words Bond, James Bond. In 2012, Daniel Craig starred in the biggest critical and box-office smash in the series, Skyfall. In 2015, Bond returns to face his deadliest enemy in Spectre. In collaboration with EON Productions, this trade edition of The James Bond Archives includes all the same stunning imagery and behind-the-scenes knowledge as the original XL book, just with a smaller format and a softer price-tag. The result is an affordable, compact yet comprehensive record of every single Bond film ever made, beginning with Dr. No (1962) and ending with exclusive material on Spectre (2015). The dazzling visual catalog of on-set photos, unseen stills, set designs, storyboards, production memos, and more is supplemented by an oral history recounted by over 150 cast and crew members. From producers to stuntmen, directors to production designers, these personal narratives bring the Bond sets to vivid, thrilling life, offering outstanding insight into the personalities and processes behind the most successful and longest-running film franchise in cinema history.
