`Still the definitive tome on James's ladies...Perfect posh porn for your coffee table'
-- Sunday Times Style magazine
The first official book highlighting the Bond girl phenomenon, by a Bond girl. How has the iconic status of the Bond girl endured for so long? Bond Women will explore how the archetype of the 'Bond girl' has evolved over the last forty years and reveals how she became and continues to be one of the strongest and most resilient symbols of 20th century pop culture. Maryam d'Abo will describe how Bond girls have reflected and defined the changing image of women in the real world. Some of the most striking and memorable of the actresses who took on the Bond challenge - from Ursula Andress to Judi Dench - will also reveal for the first time the true stories behind the role that changed their lives. With archive images of forty years of the Bond girl phenomenon and with contributions from the women behind the Bond girls themselves, Bond Girls are Forever is a beautifully produced tribute to a cultural icon that is both rebel and role model.See all Product description

Like LEGACY, BOND GIRLS doesn’t fixate on the Connery era of the '60s, but gives us the whole history of the Bond phenomenon in equal measures. In many ways, I found the chapter on the Bond Girls of the '80s to be the most fascinating because of the changing attitudes toward promiscuity due to the AIDS crisis. In this regard, d'Abo's Kara Milovy (The Living Daylights) was every bit as trailblazing as Ursula Andress' Honey Rider in Dr. No. And the photos in the book, many of which I’ve never seen, are as stunning as the women they depict (many are full page).
Like I said, if you have THE JAMES BOND LEGACY this is a must companion piece. Or if you just have an interest in beautiful, strong, independent women…well…you can’t go wrong with bringing home a Bond Girl.
The book is also a feast for the eyes, with page after stunning page of color and black-and-white photos of the world's most glamorous and alluring women - many of them rarely, if ever, seen before. All in all, it is a must-have addition to any James Bond fan's library - and just in time for Christmas!
