5.0 out of 5 stars 21st Century Bond
This book is an absolute must have for all Bond/Craig fans. The photos are stunning, high quality and rarely seen elsewhere.
The book is divided into chapters from all the locations they shoot Quantum of Solace....
Even more enjoyable after you have seen the film...And the price is just too low for a book like this. It's my favourite coffee table book so far!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful pictures but nothing more
Like the last Bond on Set book this is nothing more than simply a set of beautiful behind the scenes images. Not much text at all. Which is a shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bond On Set: Filming Quantum Of Solace. (Hardback), 29 Dec 2011
This review is from: Bond on Set: Filming Quantum of Solace (Hardcover)
I was never a big James Bond fan, until Daniel Craig took over the mantle. This man looks like he can take care of himself, looks like he could take a punch, and maybe throw a couple back, not like the other actors, who have played Bond. Excepting Sean Connery, the others looked like they couldn't punch their way out of a wet, paper bag.
Maybe it's something to do with the Mersey water!
Anyway this book is a great accompaniment to the film. The photo's are exquisite, and there are some really nice behind the scene shots.
It's a must have for a Bond fan, or a Daniel Craig fan, but by the looks of some of these prices you're gonna have to be a very big fan indeed! Luckily enough I found this in my local W.H.Smiths. The dust jacket has seen better days, and the spine and bottom edge of the book, has a little bit of wear, and it's well thumbed through, but it sounds like it's in no worse condition than some of the others on sale here. I pointed all this out to the shop assistant, who knocked a fiver off! (hey in this day and age, a fiver's a fiver) The RRP is 25.00. But I also got "Bond On Set: Casino Royale" for 5.00!!!
Minus the dust jacket... but that's another story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for all Bond/Quantum of Solace fans, 24 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bond on Set: Filming Quantum of Solace (Hardcover)
This is an excellent large hardback book that will appeal to Bond fans, anyone who enjoyed the Quantum of Solace and film fans in general. The book doesn't set out to be a narrative of the making of the film - the back cover says that Greg Williams (photographer guru) captures all the behind-the-scenes glamour, emotion and excitement as the film was being made. Anyone interested in deep analysis and text will be very disappointed.

The photographs are wonderfully reproduced on high quality paper, which really brings them to life. There is a very good mix of B&W and colour images. The sparse text that has been written complements the photos very well.

The best part about the book is that the images are divided into chapters that run in the same sequence as the film - it's like you're following the making of QoS in pictures. But it's not just shots of the film, it's the stunts, the locations and capturing many of the people that worked to put the film together. Obviously the cast feature heavily in the photos, but it's nice to see shots of the people behind the film (who don't always get the credit they deserve).

Overall, fantastic photos in an excellent book.

This review is from: Bond on Set: Filming Quantum of Solace (Hardcover)
As a die hard Bond Fan and photographer this book is perfect.The photographs are extremely high quality and the majority of them as far as I'm aware are only avaible in this book.This book offers a beautifull insight into the world of the movies and the James Bond Franchise.There are also little commentaries by the director Marc Foster about his certain feelings at points during the filming.Greg Williams is a great photographer and has worked on alot of film sets an has as far as I'm aware 5 books out,an this has got to be one of his best.
