Shaken, Not Stirred

The most complete account of the making of the James Bond series
“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 25 EON-produced films, played by six different actors over five decades.

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 No Time To Die (2021), including the spoof Casino Royale (1967) and Never Say Never Again (1983).

The wealth of previously unpublished photography, set designs, storyboards, and production memos is supplemented by an oral history recounted by over 150 cast and crew. 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. This book is a comprehensive tribute to the legend of James Bond.

The updated edition includes exclusive photography and new interviews with Daniel Craig, director Cary Fukunaga, producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, and many others, revealing the full story behind the making of the emotionally charged No Time To Die.
 
  • Made with unrestricted access to the Bond archives, this XXL tome recounts the 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 from Dr. No (1962) to No Time To Die (2021)

Upon receiving my new James Bond Archives book I could not wait to dig in. It is THE highest quality and most detailed summary of all Bond films to date.

A Perfect Gift of 007 Proportions

James, October 27, 2021
This was a gift for my wife who is a Bond fan of long-standing. Safe to say she is enormously impressed with it. She’s an incredibly busy person and doesn’t have a massive amount of time for “book pleasure” but with this one she is quite obsessed and has spent hours with it while rewatching some of her favourite (particularly the Sean Connery) Bond films. One of the best purchases I’ve made for her in the thirty odd years we’ve been Bonding together.

Best Bond Book Ever

Sami, October 27, 2021
Good things come to those who wait. And oh boy, how I waited this. And still, it was so worth it. Even if I had all the time in the world, I couldn’t describe praiseworthy enough, by words, how beautiful (and informative) this book is, you have to hold it, feel it, see it (and read it). So I just say Bond. Best Bond (book ever).
