4.0 out of 5 stars A Unique Look At Bond On Set, 12 Jan 2003
This review is from: Bond on Set: Filming Die Another Day (Paperback)
The most recent James Bond films have had 'making of' books published to coincide with the films cinematic release, and it seemed that Die Another Day would be no different. However, Greg Williams 'Bond On Set' isn't quite a 'making of' book, it's something more special.
Past 'making of' books are a mixture of text and pictures, with the latter receiving the least attention. With Bond on Set Williams has reversed that factor and provided a book that is mostly a compilation of pictures.
At first, the change did cause disappointment. I wanted to read behind the scenes stories, find out little pieces of trivia about Die Another Day, and hear of complications and unexpected successes. However, Williams' brilliance with a camera, described by producer Michael G Wilson in his 'forward', really eclipsed my initial disappointment.
While promotional pictures from the book have already been circulated across the Internet, some of the best photos are definitely found within the book. Look no further than the Williams' photos of actress Rosamund Pike to highlight his skill; these are definitely the best photos of Rosamund published to date. Other behinds the scenes photos are just as unique, and seem to have definitely benefited from David Tattersall's cinematography.
Disappointment aside, Pierce Brosnan's small introduction really sums up the book, "never before have we seen back stage intimacies of a Bond movie in such a classic book as this."

5.0 out of 5 stars A real insiders guide, 14 Nov 2002
This review is from: Bond on Set (Hardcover)
The usual making of a movie book are heavy on text and light on images. This book is quite the opposite it a fantastic portfolio of the production process of the 20th James Bond Adventure Die Another Day.
The images which are a mixture of Black and White and Colour are of outstanding clarity and give a rare insight into the World of James Bond. The size and scale of the sets. The logistical challenge which presents itself with each new instalment. The book is Bond fans dream come true.
Eon Productions are rightly careful to not let just anyone on their sets to witness the filming of a Bond films so this is the ideal gift for fans of the series or anyone with a passing interest in film production. The images show Brosnan in and out of character and certainly enjoying himself.
Well worth the price - you will look at this book again and again. But so not to spoil the new film look at it after the movie ok.
Worth hunting around for in the Bond makings of books is the Making of Licence to Kill - well worth it.
