I was a bit hesitant about buying this as I already have Tony Nourmand's James Bond Poster Book. Did I really need another book with the same posters? After reading the positive reviews on Amazon I decided to plump up the cash and risk it.
And the result?
Boy am I glad I took the leap of faith for this book excels in every department compared to Nourmand's effort ( which incidentally I really like). All the films are covered right upto the teaser poster for Skyfall. The print quality far exceeds that of Tony Nourmand's book and the posters all appear a lot more sharper and clearer, there are more variations of posters for each film than in the previous book.
My only criticism is that it includes lobby cards for some films but not all - seems a strange decision but it a minor gripe on my part.
So should you buy it if you have aleady own the James Bond Poster Book? Most definitely.
Is it an essential addition to your 007 library? Without a doubt.
Well done to DK and the authors for delivering a top quality product, the book is thick and heavy, paper quality is excellent and the thick slipcase is a welcome bonus which adds to the quality.
Buy it and you won;t regret it.

Wow! This book is BIG AND HEAVY! In fact, it's so heavy it busted loose from Amazon's flimsy packaging, got slightly damaged and had to be repackaged by Australia Post before it could be delivered to me. Instead of being upset, I still say bravo to Amazon for what they charged for price and postage! Both were very reasonable and allow me to be still very happy with my purchase. As for the book itself, the photos are numerous and very clear. There's comparatively very little text but one could spend hours just looking through the photos and reminiscing over the good times had while watching the films over the years. While the majority of the photos seem to show US material, there's still a wealth of other foreign material and some very interesting "unused concept" material to pore over. Being Australian, I was pleased to see some Australian content including a nice James Bond double bill poster at the end of the book that triggered a flood of distant nostalgic memories rushing back to me. So, if you've been undecided whether to buy this title, delay no longer. Place your order today! It might be missing a lot of lobby cards as mentioned by other reviewers, but for the price, this is definitely a FIVE star purchase!

Format: Hardcover
Around 1999 Boxtree published Tony Normands James Bond Movie Posters book which at the time was more than enough for Bondophiles everywhere. However 13 years have passed and dispite only 4 Bond movies have been made since then, a new 50th anniversary book was called for. This book obviously contains A LOT of posters you will already be familier with and a few rare unseen versions you won't have seen like TLD and LTK for instance. The book is very heavy and lavishly put together. Another reviewer states the lack of lobby cards etc from other countries which I agree with is a disappointment but an inclusion would probably mean a book so big and heavy that you could take it to the gym with you !! That asides, you also get 2 reprints about A4 size of Dr. No and Octopussy which may require framing on my part ! Worth the money but if you own the Boxtree book you may want to browse a copy first.

Format: Hardcover
Dorling Kindersley's rather lavish book is perhaps more of a dinner table book than a coffee table book for one simple reason: it's huge. While you'll certainly need a lot of extra space just to turn the pages (male readers risk a hernia if the try reading it in their laps), it's a terrific overview of the film series that probably more than any other changed the way films were marketed. Unfortunately, it's also an unwitting demonstration of how unimaginative modern movie posters have become, with the ingenuity and wonderful artwork by many of the great movie poster artists of all time - Frank McCarthy, Bob Peak, Robert McGinnis, Renato Casari, Jean Maschi - giving way to increasingly identikit photoshop efforts. By the time you get to Quantum of Solace action packed artwork is a thing of the past, with GQ fashion shoots seemingly the model, a tragedy when you consider how iconic many of the great Bond posters like From Russia with Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Live and Let Die or the 1967 Casino Royale are (gratifyingly this volume doesn't pretend that the EON films are the only Bond movies). Still, it could have been more dispiriting still: time precluded including all but the sly teaser for Skyfall, which has seen the laziest photoshopped posters in the series history.

Not that photoshopping is always bad: there are some good photo montages and teasers right through to the Timothy Dalton era (though the photoshop Licence to Kill quad is still a lowpoint) even when the producers decided to go with some of the dodgier artwork produced (the Moonraker teaser is infinitely superior to the clumsy final release ones).
