The successful art book publishers, Taschen, published the ultimate pictorial guide to James Bond when they released their 'James Bond Archives' back in 2012.
They have since revised the book to include SPECTRE content and a new smaller and more modestly priced edition is coming in March 2018. It is now available to order form their website.
MI6 received the following information from the publishers:
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 Spectre (2015).
The wealth of on-set photos, unseen stills, set designs, storyboards, and production memos 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 relate the true inside story from the Bond sets, offering outstanding insight into the personalities and processes behind the most successful and longest-running film franchise in cinema history.
Hardcover, 13.3 x 9.7 in., 624 pages
The new edition is priced from £45 or $70 US and can be ordered from taschen.com
