Last week we had a reading list from the staff at Brompton Library all about Young James Bond. This week they’re back with a collection of books that take us behind the scenes of Britain’s most successful action movie series.
Some Kind of Hero: The Remarkable Story of the James Bond Films
Following the highs and lows of the Bond film franchise from when it started in the 1960s up to its present day resurgence in popularity. Drawing on hundreds of previously unpublished interviews with cast and crew, a definitive guide for all fans.
Who better to give an inside look at the Bond films than everyone’s favourite Bond, Roger Moore. Giving us his inside view with his inimitable charm and charisma, Moore talks us through all the bond films and his involvement in them. Accompanied by many great shots of the gadgets, the cars and the Bonds’ themselves on the set and behind the scenes, this is the ultimate James Bond guide written by the ultimate Bond.
Blood, Sweat and Bond: Behind the Scenes of Spectre
A photographic account of the filming of Spectre with many great shots of the sets, the fight scenes and the actors at work and at play. There are also little bits of information about costumes, sets and shooting, as well as quotes from cast and crew. A beautiful book to savour over long after the film is finished.
We’ll be back with more reading lists soon, and do let us know (in the comments below) if Roger Moore isn’t your favourite Bond…
