I have been a James Bond fan since seeing "Dr. No," at age 13, at my local theater with my father. I have numerous books on Bond and the Bond films and several books on the James Bond movie posters. However, they do not come close to this book. This heavyweight hard-cover book comes in a nice hard-cover sleeve with Connery as Bond on the front cover and Roger Moore in "Octopussy" on the back. As stated this book is big and heavy. (I would not hit anyone on the head with this book as you will surely knock them out or worse.)
The book starts with "Dr. No" and concludes with the upcoming "Skyfall." On top of the official Bond films, the 1967 mess "Casino Royale" and the unnecessary Sean Connery remake of "Thunderball," "Never Say Never Again" are also included. One of the many things I love about this book are the inclusions of lobby card sets and Italian "Photobustas." Also there are translations of what is written on the non-English Bond posters, a great idea.
The one thing I really came to realize was how much nicer the painted posters from the Connery/Moore days were compared to what we are seeing today which are basically all photographs. I own several of the Bond posters and never tire of looking at the wonderful artwork on films like "You Only Live Twice" and "Live and Let Die." And while I am greatly looking forward to "Skyfall," the Bond films of the Connery/Moore years were major events to be excited about. Their posters reflected this. I'm not quite sure that it is the same thing today.
In conclusion, if your're any sort of a Bond fan at all, you must get this book.
