The Coffee Table Read

The James Bond Archives

By now you should have seen Skyfall (spoiler: it's fantastic) but if you're after yet more Bond, do yourself a favour and have a look at this book.

The James Bond archives does what it says on the tin, taking a look at every Bond film ever made, including Skyfall.

There's a mountain of unseen photographs including on set photographs, stills and posters as well as storyboards. If you've ever wanted to see how they've pulled off all those stunts, this  is the place to do it. There's even an oral history of Bond, with over 150 people who worked on the film commenting on inside stories behind the franchise.
