“The James Bond Archives”


Published by Taschen, Koln, Germany, 2012

First Edition, First Printing



Offered here SEALED  in the original box and in NEW condition is “The James Bond Archives,” published in 2012 by Taschen. Taschen’s new deluxe title examines one the most beloved film series of all times. Built upon the fiction of Ian Fleming, the James Bond movie series has won over millions of fans worldwide, and this 50th anniversary tribute is truly a gift for them all. With over 1,000 images covering the complete series of films, plus a complete oral history giving a behind-the-scenes perspective rarely seen, this is the most complete book to be published on the series. This first run is also the ONLY edition of the book being released with an actual strip of film from Dr. No, the first of the James Bond movies. Another amazing and truly exquisite Taschen release.


From the Publisher: ‘Bond, James Bond.’ Since Sean Connery uttered those immortal words in 1962, the most dashing secret agent in the history of cinema has been charming and thrilling audiences worldwide. This impeccably British character created by author Ian Fleming has starred in 23 EON-produced films, played by 6 different actors over five decades. To celebrate 50 years of this innovative franchise, EON Productions opened their archives of photos, designs, storyboards, and production materials to editor Paul Duncan, who spent two years researching over one million images and 100 filing cabinets of documentation. The result is the most complete account of the making of the series, covering every James Bond film ever made, beginning with Dr. No (1962) and ending with the upcoming SkyFall (2012), including the spoof Casino Royale (1967) and Never Say Never Again (1983). The stunning imagery is accompanied by an oral history recounted by over 150 cast and crew members, relating the true inside story of how the Bond films were made. Containing previously unpublished photography and artwork, as well as production memos from filming, this book is a comprehensive tribute to the legend of James Bond. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the most successful and longest-running film franchise in cinema history! Made with unrestricted access to the Bond archives, this XL tome recounts the entire history of James Bond in words and pictures. Among the 1,100 images are many previously unseen stills, on-set photos, memos, documents, storyboards, posters, and designs, plus unused concepts, and alternative designs. Behind-the-scenes stories from the people who were there: producers, directors, actors, screenwriters, production designers, special effects technicians, stuntmen, and other crew members. Includes every Bond film ever made, from Dr. No (1962) to SkyFall (2012) .Special bonus included with the first print run of the book only: an original strip of film from Dr. No.”


This is a hardcover book in NEW condition with cloth boards that comes housed inside a cardboard case. The book measures 16.25 x 11.75 inches. It contains 1,100 images in color and black-and-white, in 600 pages. The book also comes with an original film strip from Dr. No, included exclusively with this first printing of the book.
