Introducing The James Bond Archives: Spectre Edition

The James Bond Archive

No other film series is as long-running and well-loved as James Bond. Spanning over 50 years, from Dr No in 1962 right up to the present day, the franchise has grown into a movie behemoth attracting the biggest and best names in the film industry and creating buzz like few other films.

Charting such a rich and detailed history is quite the task, but book publisher TASCHEN and editor Paul Duncan have done just that with The James Bond Archives: Spectre Edition.

Thanks to unrestricted access to the James Bond archives, this tome is packed full of concept designs, artwork, on-set photos, storyboards, posters, memos, and much more. It walks through the Bond back catalogue, each entry accompanied by an essay from some of film's most noted writers, including writers for Empire and Total Film and authors in their own right. With over 1,000 photos and countless other snippets of Bond history, this really is the ultimate coffee table book for James Bond fanatics.

It’s bang up-to-date too. The original version was released in 2012 following the release of Skyfall, but this updated edition also takes into account Spectre, Bond’s most recent outing.

We met with editor Paul Duncan to get an insight into just how he went about putting together such a comprehensive book.

Here are some snapshots from inside the book to give you an idea of what you can expect...

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
