3.0 out of 5 stars A nice novelty peice for James Bond fans, Dec 18 2014

This review is from: James Bond 50 Years Of Movie Posters (Hardcover)
While this is not a definitive or comprehensive guide, it is still a substantial collection of James Bond poster art, lobby cards, door panels, and other printed promotional material. It goes well beyond the obvious and common US 1-Sheet and British Quads and delves into the more novel interpretations of Japanese, Spanish, Italian, and French posters (to name just a few). Lacking are some of the more esoteric pieces such as the numerous double-feature posters which were prevalent in the 60s. Presented chronologically, it reveals, even to a relative novice, the decline in artistic content as we go from the rich and varied poster artwork of the early Bonds to the bland photo-centric content of the more contemporary movies. Most of the pieces presented are fairly good photos of actual posters, LCs, etc with only the odd piece being out of focus or less than pristine. Text content is decidedly sparse, for the most part limited to a couple preamble paragraphs for each chapter/movie and notations of poster specs, artist, and the odd bit of trivia about a given piece.

So while this wont pass as an authoritative reference for serious vintage poster collectors or aficionados, I cannot imagine a Bond fan not being enamored with such a substantial tome in their collection, one which will invite repeat perusing.

That said, I would only recommend this "on sale" as the physical piece is sub-par. The hardcover is finished in a cheap, glossy paper which invites blemish just looking at it and the binding is I believe inadequate for the substantial weight of the more than 300 pages: my copy arrived with the book's stack torn almost completely away from the cover (holding on, literally, by threads!) and as such had to be returned (if/when I get a replacement I will update).
