The `James Bond Movie Poster Postcard Book' is - in concept - a very nice idea: present a collection of the world-famous and instantly recognizable Film Posters from the James Bond Films, from `Dr. No' (the very first to be filmed in 1962, with Sean Connery as Bond) up to `Die Another Day' (Pierce Brosnan's final outing as Bond, in 2002); as a flip-book of 5 x 7 detachable `post-cards' (actually, they are nearer 5 x 6 ½ when detached - but, `so what?').
The quality of this flip-book is generally 'good' - the individual poster pages are printed on a heavier gauge `card' than standard book-gauge paper (as indeed is the outer font & rear cover), giving these a genuine `post-card' size, weight & feel to them (indeed, their reverse side is also marked out for use as a formal `post-card', complete with Stamp Square Mark etc).
But what totally ruins this collection is the omission of a poster for the 5th Sean Connery Bond Film: `You Only Live Twice' - Why? Why, thrice `Why?!' This destroys (what could easily have been) a very comprehensive and worthwhile collators item for both the causal and the dedicated `Bond' Fan alike.
This unforgivable omission makes the whole publication (almost) pointless. It's like having a history of the Second World War and forgetting to represent the D-Day Landings on one of the beaches! - you just DON'T do it!
Further more, in its place is included a Japanese poster of the 1967 `Casino Royale' film (I stress again: that's the `original' 1967 `farce' film, starring David Niven and Woody Allen et al, and NOT the recent exemplary 2006 `Casino Royale' film, starring Daniel Craig) - the 1967 film not even being an `official' James Bond Film!
Additionally, in a number of cases, multiple `one-sheets' are included for a particular film (`Die Another Day' for example is represented by FIVE - that's `5', count them - posters!) - as used to promote the film in different countries and areas of the world. Whilst these are (generally) worth-while and have some interest value; this again seems totally pointless when the overall `collection' is missing representation of one of the series most memorable and important films in: `You Only Live Twice'.
`You Only Live Twice' was actually the last time Sean Connery played Bond, in his original 5 film `run' (although he did return to the role again for `Diamonds Are Forever' in 1969, and then - finally - for `Never Say Never Again' in 1983; the latter itself being regarded as an `unofficial' James Bond Film - not part of the `EON' Series), and it also features one of Bond's most memorable `gadgets' of all time: the autogyro, code named: `Little Nellie' (or `a Toy Helicopter!' according to Bond's ally in the film, `Tiger' Tanaka!) - which featured in the film's spectacular aerial fire-fight encounter between Bond and several `SPECTRE' Helicopter Gunships, high above Ernst Stavro Blofeld's secret Rocket Launching Facility within a concealed Japanese Island Volcano Crater.
So, if you are going to omit any film from such a series collection as this (and you shouldn't!) - then this film is certainly NOT the one to omit!
So, what remains here is `OK' - 3 'Stars: ***', and is worth purchasing for your own `Bond Collection', Just do so in the up-front knowledge that there is this omission, and that this `collection' is (far) from being a `definitive' representation of the James Bond Film Posters from across the entire EON film series.
Also note: this collection is now `out-of-date' - since the 2006 release of the excellent franchise reinvigorator: `Casino Royale' (Daniel Craig); so if / when the publishers finally get round to revising this post-card flip-book it is to be hoped that they will INCLUDE at least 1 `one-sheet' for `You Only Live Twice', remove the awful `Casino Royale' 1967 `farce' film, and include sheet(s) representing the latest 2006 `Casino Royale' Daniel Craig Masterpiece.
But, until then, it has to be: `Goodbye, Mr. Bond!' to this particular post-card collection flip-book publication.
